Talent Fairy Hire
Mindy Walker at The Week Junior
Congratulations to Mindy, who just started in her role as Deputy Editor at the brand new newsweekly for kids ages 8 to 14. Mindy is a veteran magazine editor, holding senior roles at SELF, American Baby, and Parents. Before TWJ, she led content strategy for Cheree Berry Paper and the Bright parenting app. She will work as #2 to Andrea Barbalich, the EIC of TWJ, and their team as they launch their first issue this spring. “I’m both thrilled and grateful to welcome Mindy to our editorial team, says Andrea. “Her incredible experience, broad range of skills, and genuine passion for our mission are exactly what we need to make this magazine superb and successful.”
I’ve actually known Mindy for 20+ years and we worked together at Parents. It was a special thrill to make this match between her and Andrea. I actually brought them back together after TK years. They worked together briefly at Child magazine in the Tks! Before Mindy took off to London for an orientation of sorts with her new company, we caught up about her new big move at The Week Junior.
