I spend a lot of time on forums. One of the things I've noticed is that new writers are always looking for mentors. While established writers pretty much all seem to be very generous with their time (I've received tons of help from others), no one has the time to focus on mentoring one individual.
If you are looking for an established author to mentor you, check out this great contest at The Bookshelf Muse. Angela Ackerman writes both YA and MG. If you write in those genres check the contest out.
Did I mention she's into Zombies?
