Want To Be A Music Journalist?
Q Magazine and YOUYOU Mentoring have paired up to offer advice and work experience to young people; the organisations will offer training to unemployed and out of education 17-21 year olds with an interest in breaking into music journalism.
Editor-in-chief for Q Magazine, Paul Rees said:
“Last year I mentored a small group of YOUYOU candidates on the practise of putting a magazine together. I found their U into, and enthusiasm for, our two sessions thoroughly rewarding and inspiring.
“In 2011, Q has committed to doubling the number of YOUYOU candidates we mentor, and for the second year running, we can confirm YOUYOU as our charity partner for the annual Q Awards. Q is looking forward to working once more with YOUYOU and anticipate that our partnership will grow and develop further.”
Whilst YOUYOU Mentoring Founder Brenda Ramsey says:
“We are very proud to be collaborating with Q and working together to show the value of mentoring in helping to shape future talent and give a head start within the industry. We are also very excited to be the recipient of the Q Awards.”
Event Director Margaret Peck will also be involved in the scheme and will choose one lucky person to accompany her to this year
