Mentor For A Day
The Mentor-for-a-Day program matches early career dramaturgs with professionals for a one-time chat of about an hour. The "chat" could be by email, phone, or in person -- whatever works best. Although there is no guarantee, sometimes these conversations continue past the one-time chat and flower into more enduring mentorships.
Our definition of mentor is expansive: Are you a recent grad willing to mentor current students? A current grad student willing to talk to people looking for grad schools? Freelancers, what should we know about your city? Are you having success applying dramaturgical skills in an arena other than theater? This is a great opportunity not only to talk about how you got your gig at a regional theater or university or wherever your cool job is, but also to get a sense of the amazing up-and-comers' thoughts and training.
The Mentor for a Day program occurs a few times a year. Please check back to this site, the LMDA list serv, and the ECDramaturg Facebook group for announcements of the next match.
This program is limited to to LMDA members.
