Critique Service and Writing Mentorships by Miranda Paul

I have had a really great time over the past 10-15 years helping many of you find your footing in the publishing world through my freelance critique services. Thank you for those opportunities, and I'm so grateful when you check in and let me know your success stories!

If you haven't yet read my BIG news yet—basically, in 2019 I became an agent at the Erin Murphy Literary Agency. To avoid any conflict of interest, I am no longer offering paid critique services or writing mentorships except at conferences or workshops for which I've been specifically contracted to do so. And I don't answer agent emails at my personal or writerly email addresses, sorry. (That means no queries, please.)

Even if I won't be able to help you develop your work in a critique or mentor capacity, I am still cheering you on, promise! And if you're a writer or illustrator from an underrepresented community, please check out We Need Diverse Books, which runs an annual mentorship program that I started (yay!) and offers all kinds of grants, awards, and resources.
