Paying It Forward

Starting a new genre publication or stepping into a senior editorial position can be a daunting prospect, with few resources for learning about industry best practices or to privately sense-check new ideas. We might be able to help.

Our editorial teams and senior producers are happy to answer questions, serve as sounding boards, and share their experiences with new markets and teams. Likewise you can reach EA’s co-owners and publishers, Alasdair Stuart and Marguerite Kenner, if you have a more business-focused question.

The best way to reach out is through the contact form on our website. Select ‘Mentorship Question’ under the Department dropdown, and let us know in the subject line who you’d like to connect with, be it a specific person or a more general subject.

Many thanks to L.D. Lewis for crystalizing this need, and fellow publications like Diabolical Plots and Strange Horizons for taking part in this important community knowledge sharing.
