If you don't already know about this organisation and you're a budding children's or young adult writer then I can't recommend it highly enough.
Write Mentor has many different aspects to it and allows you to take a step closer to becoming published. Here's what their website says:WriteMentor started as a small, voluntary programme to help writers of children’s fiction take the next step in their writing career. Since, it has grown and we now offer paid mentoring (via Spark), weekend workshops across the UK, our 15 week intensive online courses, the Children’s Novel Award and our exciting online conference, WOW-CON! WriteMentor is highly inclusive and we endeavour to make all of our opportunities as affordable and accessible as possible. We regularly offer scholarships and free opportunities, so do keep an eye out for those.
It's well worth taking a look. I enrolled onto the SPARK programme, which is paid mentoring. It was very affordable and everything via email so easy too. You get access to all kinds of additional information and support, and every month you can bypass the slush pile and apply directly to the SPARK agents.
I'm really happy that I took part. It made a big difference to me. You can read more about my experience by reading my interview: Write Mentor Interview
