Mentor Contest

Would you like access to your very own mentor – someone who has published for your target category and/or genre? This is the contest for you!

Win a six-month mentorship with one of our region’s Published And Listed members! Click here to learn about membership levels.

Year-to-year the mentorship focus will be on either illustration or writing of a specific category (i.e. middle grade, young adult) and sometimes genre (i.e. fiction, non-fiction).
