We’re Looking For a Few New Mixed-Up Members!

We’d love to add some new members to our blog who love middle-grade books as much as we do.

Who should apply to be a member?

Writers or illustrators with a passion for middle grade books!

***We’re strongly committed to diversity in publishing. If you’re a writer of color or other underrepresented voice, please apply!***


What’s it like to be a member of the Mixed-Up Files blog?

*Members have scheduled posting dates about 5 – 7 times a year (but are welcome to add extra posts). We love having original, quality posts that can include discussion-invoking topics about the changing market, unique book lists, interviews…pretty much anything middle-grade related.

*Each Mixed-Up member has at least one job (such as keeping our parent, teacher or librarian pages updated, gathering new release information, or updating our social media pages).

*We greatly appreciate when our members join in discussions and help promote our blog via their own social media pages, too.


If you’re interested in joining us, click here to fill out an application.


We can’t wait to hear from you! Please spread the word to others who might be interested. If you applied a while back and would still like to join us, we’d be happy to receive a new application from you.
