And will be talking about Word on the Street – making a magazine in a day

About Word on the Street

Word on the Street is the magazine made in a day from Magazine Street, designed by world renowned editorial designer Simon Esterson, and written by kick-ass editor Joanna Cummings.

Word on the Street is a snapshot of Magazine Street – and the magazine publishing industry we all love to be part of. In its pages you’ll find examples of the passion, knowledge and sheer bloodymindedness that gets publications from concept to treasured project.
