Writing can be lonely, but it doesn’t need to be

Get the help you need to write and publish a children’s book with the support of authors and industry experts. Through online courses, one-to-one mentoring, and virtual events, we’re busting the myth of the isolated writer by creating a community of storytellers.

Welcome to WriteMentor.

Since 2018 we’ve helped more than 100 writers secure agent representation or publishing deals.
