Editorial mentoring: What's in it for you?

Posted on: 30 May 2014

Tuesday 17 June, SA Writers' Centre, 7.30 p.m. start

Mentoring is a great way to share editing knowledge, develop your professional expertise, and get to know other editors. Both mentees and mentors can benefit hugely from the experience of mentoring, and we're delighted that a National Mentoring Program has been set up to provide this invaluable professional support to editors around Australia.

Now, all Society of Editors (SA) members, full or associate, can apply for a place on the national scheme and partner up with someone who could really make a difference to their editing career paths.

At our next general members' meeting, join South Australian mentoring coordinator Katy McDevitt and the rest of the SocEds team as we get our part of the mentoring program under way.

We'll be discussing the benefits of mentoring and providing an overview of how the mentoring program will work in SA. We'll also explore some case studies that will get us all thinking.

Katy will be happy to chat with you about your interest in becoming a mentee or mentor -- and we'd love to have lots of both!

To receive an information pack before the meeting simply email Katy at katy@kmeditorial.com, or to register for this free event go to http://17junemembersmeeting.eventzilla.net
