Matchmaking is much easier if it flows in the other direction. If editors are open to mentoring a couple of younger writers, they can post in their tournament announcement something like "open for writers to apply for categories X, Y, and Z." Encouraging editors to make this more of a norm would be a good pipeline for younger writers.
I've got together a (stellar!) team of writers/editors for "PIANO," what I'm hoping will be next year's Spring open (Nationals-difficulty), but I'd love to have a few more literature writers (this doesn't mean that I wouldn't let you write/edit in other categories!). Message me if you're interested and are planning to be enrolled next year!
