Author Mentor Match Round 5 Mentor Application
Thank you for your interest in joining Author Mentor Match as a mentor! Author Mentor Match is a program that focuses on building deep and fruitful connections between aspiring writers and more established authors. AMM promises entrants who are chosen at least one full manuscript review with notes, as well as a query critique, but we hope that mentors and mentees will bond and work on more together. The terms of your mentor/mentee relationship are flexible and up to you and your mentee to decide! There is no ticking clock and you can work with your mentee at yours and their own pace. We look forward to reviewing your application.

You should be agented or published, or have a book deal. This program is for writers pursuing traditional publishing, thus our mentors must be familiar with that process.

Round 5 submissions will be open in mid-October, with mentorship beginning in early November. The bulk of editorial work will take place in November/December and into the New Year. (it is OK if you cannot get your mentee an edit letter immediately, as long as you set those expectations with them.)

Please fill this out by July 22. We will select new mentors by early August.

What has your publishing journey been like?
We just would love to get a sense of your publishing experiences, so far. There's no right answer. But if you wrote and queried and shelved 5 books before getting your agent and selling the 6th, that's good to know. Have you been on submission and not sold a book? Have you left one agent and found another? No one experience is the "best" or 'right' one--we aim to assemble a team of diverse experiences! Tell us as much or as little as you feel comfortable with.
