Calling all young journalists: Empire magazine wants you

The editor-in-chief of film and entertainment magazine, Empire, has put a call-out on Twitter for budding young journalists to sign up for a mentorship scheme, in order to gain work experience.


Terri White tweeted about the scheme last week, 19 October, explaining that eight Empire and Pilot TV journalists had signed up to the scheme and are looking for young journalists to mentor.

It is hoped that the mentorship scheme will enable young journalists from all backgrounds to gain skills and get feedback from established professionals working in magazine journalism.


Empire magazine printed its first issue in 1989, and has been producing hard hitting news and features on the film and television industry ever since. The mentorship scheme is perfect for those who are particularly interested in entertainment journalism, and want to write a variety of articles, including news, features and reviews.

If you’d like to apply for the scheme, just emailĀ introducing yourself and explaining why you’d like to be involved. Applications close 2 November, so make sure you get in touch ASAP to be considered.
