Speed Mentoring

Need editorial or career advice? Speed mentoring offers editors of all experience levels an opportunity for advice and feedback from someone who's been there.

We’re organizing the speed mentoring session for the 2019 conference in Halifax and want to know what you want to know. Maybe you’d like to find out about academic, medical, or legal editing. Or what’s involved in editing magazines, cookbooks, or genre fiction. Maybe you’re wondering how to find work as a freelance editor, or you need advice about professional development. Or something else entirely? Please tell us what you’ve always wanted to know but were afraid to ask.

If you would like to be a speed mentor or nominate someone else as a speed mentor, we’d like to hear from you too! Please tell us what topics you or the person you’d nominate would offer for discussion with fellow editors who could benefit from your experience.

Email us at Let’s get this speed dating mentoring party started!

We’ll let you know when sign-up for this session opens.
