Our Mission

We’re working towards opening an International Magazine Centre in Edinburgh – a physical building and hub of global excellence for magazines and magazine publishing.

The International Magazine Centre will offer office space dedicated to magazine publishers looking to expand their business into the UK, together with an incubator space for start-ups and recent graduates.

The Centre will host exhibitions, training courses and events, not only for magazine publishers, but also for a consumer audience coming to be inspired.

There’ll be an incredible magazine shop with magazine’s from across the world, and a coffee shop to act as a community hub for people working in and around magazine publishing.

Supporting Small Publishers

We’re working hard to open the doors of the International Magazine Centre, building our community of people passionate about magazines.

Everything we do is dedicated to supporting small businesses working in and around magazine publishing. We offer online and in-person events and training, a mentoring scheme for people at all stages of their career, connections with suppliers and other publishers, and often just a listening ear or ideas on which direction to take.

Find out what events and training we have coming up soon on our What’s On pages.

Join our community by becoming a Patron, giving you free access to online events, discounts on training and with our suppliers, an invitation to our mentoring scheme, access to our Patron-only forums, and more!

Check out our journal for what we’re working on at the moment, and sign up to our newsletter to be kept up-to-date.
