Meet the mentor | Trevor Dolby

I'm very pleased that Trevor accepted the assignment of Mentor for the SYP scheme. His distinguished career as a publisher is within the polar opposite of mine -- trade publishing. He was at the forefront of the celebrity autobiography genre (formerly MD of HarperEntertainment, he is now Publisher at Preface, part of Random House). Trevor is an expert in his publishing field and is an excellent writer himself.

To that list he can also add excellent [and greatly appreciated] mentor. He is currently mentoring a Classics/Publishing MA student whose aim is to gain an entry-level trade editorial position. (The student has achieved this.)
