Earlier this year, I started an experiment of sorts: A one-on-one game journalism mentorship program.
The idea was to measure the level of interest and to try my hand at mentoring, both to weight how many people wanted something like this and to judge how capable I was at helping mentees.
I’ll be collecting all of the stories and videos born of that effort, from the announcement to the actual lessons, on this page so you can follow along if you’re interested.
I’d love to hear your thoughts as well.
