Meet the mentor | Rachel Lynch

I am sincerely grateful to Rachel Lynch, MD of Ashgate Publishing, for her sterling input into the SYP mentoring scheme. The student's mentoring goal is to complete a work experience placement with an academic publisher, with a view to full-time employment.

Rachel has guided the student on interview technique, recommended specific smaller publishers to approach, and advised her on promoting herself to independent publishers (whilst encouraging her to sound out local bookshops for work in the meantime). The student has recently completed an internship at HarperCollins, and had a number of interviews.
Thank you, Rachel!
