Mentorship

Why are we doing this?

Some Writers are interested in becoming Editors. But despite their constant effort, they are unable to improve enough for promotion.
In order to help struggling writers learn how to edit better, we believe a comprehensive, one-on-one tutoring system will be helpful.
Hands-on experience is the most valuable and can be a game-changer for many people. Hitting a dead end is not fun, and Rewrite should be an enjoyable place.

Who can join?

All Writers who have failed the Writer to Editor Test at least twice are eligible.

Who are the mentors?

Coordinators will be the primary mentors and first point of contact for the majority of mentees. However, especially when there is a shortage, Editors who have shown consistent high-quality dedication towards MAL Rewrite can also become a mentor.

What does it entail?

Mentees will become Junior Editors. They are allowed to do edits, but before they can move on, their mentor must review it.
Junior Editors are not fully-fledged Editors. They cannot access the #editors channel on Discord or receive any other Editor-exclusive access, privileges, and benefits.

When does it end?

If the mentee has taken the Writer to Editor Test less than four times, they are to complete it once more. The result of that test will determine whether the mentee will become an Editor.
If the mentee has taken it four times or more, a Coordinator (usually their own mentor) will give a verdict, most likely in discussion with other Coordinators.

Can a mentor change?

For various reasons, a mentor might well be unable to fulfil their role. If this is the case, a mentee will be assigned a new mentor.
If a mentee feels that their mentor is not committing to them, the mentee should attempt to politely bring these concerns with their mentor first. If this does not resolve the issue, the mentee should contact the Coordinator responsible for the Mentorship Program.
