Mentoring

In an increasingly fragmented world where many work from home, the opportunities to connect, share ideas and get support from others working in publishing is less and less.

To address this, we run an international mentoring scheme, connecting people working in publishing, to encourage them, offer peer-to-peer support and nurture their creativity, ambition and career.

Be Mentored

If you need some steer on the next path to take, some space to take stock and make a plan of action for the future, or some guidance on a career idea, then an International Magazine Centre Mentor could be for you.

Our mentoring scheme is open to people at all levels of their career – maybe you’re a student, maybe you’ve just started your own magazine, maybe you’re an established publisher, or even a CEO – if you’re looking for a different perspective then we welcome you.

We ask mentors to meet with mentees for one hour a month for four months. This can be in person, by phone or by video call as you wish. Once the four months is over, you’re welcome to continue meeting if you wish, but will be under no pressure to do so.

Our Mentor Scheme is available to our ‘Two Scoops and a Flake’ and above Patrons – find out more and sign-up on our Patreon page, or if you’re already a Patron, get in touch to register.

Become a Mentor

If you would like to help support your magazine publishing peers, we’d love to have you involved.

Mentors are asked to provide guidance on career development, to nurture their mentee’s confidence and ambition, and to help steer them towards their passions.

We welcome mentees at all levels of their career – students, brand new publishers, established publishers, even CEOs – but we talk to you about the level you’d be happy to mentor at before pairing you up.

We ask mentors to meet with mentees for one hour a month for four months. This can be in person, by phone or by video call as you wish. Once the four months is over, you’re welcome to continue meeting if you wish, but will be under no pressure to do so.
