50 Comics Positives For 2014: New Zealand Society Of Authors Offers Formal Mentorships

imageIt was a very small story that flashed across my screen only a couple of times, and on CR I took both opportunities to patiently explain why mentoring as the New Zealand Society Of Authors is going to try it might not work in North America. That shouldn't ruin the fact that a bunch of young cartoonists from New Zealand may get a chance to learn from cartoonists like New Zealand in an increasingly rudderless international publishing landscape for comics and cartooning. Someone will almost certainly benefit here. That may be one or more of the cartoonists supplying the mentoring, as nothing sharpens the mind on certain matters as teaching those things and nothing makes you more responsible than responsibility. Now I'm not so sure something like this wouldn't be worth trying here.
