Commemorating WNDB’s Released Mentees


It’s nearly that time once more! Annually we open up applications for our mentorship program, a year-long program in which mentees function individually with their advisors to boost their craft, find out more regarding the posting sector, and also change their finished manuscripts or profiles. For 2023 mentorships, the application home window will certainly open up on September 1, 2022

For many years, we have actually been pleased to match well-known released writers and also illustrators to increasing varied makers, that have actually taken place to do amazing points in their very own occupations. Below are guides released or introduced up until now by our mentees considering that their mentorships. Congratulations to every person!

Unless kept in mind or else, every one of the complying with publications remain in the mentees’ corresponding mentorship groups.
