I have various friends/ex colleagues I bounce things off but have never had an official mentor or offered this support to someone else. Interested to hear whether others have used mentors, how they went about finding one and any recommendations for getting the best out of the process.
I have wanted to find a mentor for my creative writing for some time now but I don’t know where to look and am too embarrassed to reach out to someone uninvited!
I know what you mean. I’ve no idea of the protocol.
I joined my universities mentoring scheme, and occasionally help students with Q’s about the industry, or routes into it. Maybe we should start an events university
