Training and consultancy

As part of our work to support magazine publishers and encourage people from all backgrounds to enter the industry, we’re creating an open-access professional development course for the international magazine publishing community –
‘21st Century Magazine Publishing’.

Why is this important?

The industry is notoriously under-represented in minority groups, both in magazines themselves and in their production – to diversify we must create varied access points for aspiring publishers. But it’s a difficult industry to work in too – providing inspiration and tips for established publishers is essential, actionable content.

What does the course look like?

We’re working to deliver four modules – three aimed at established publishers on Content, Audience and Revenue, and a fourth on the Business of Magazines, aimed at students and those new to the industry. The modules will be delivered digitally across ten video lessons, each including excerpts of interviews and publishing events (run by us) with senior publishers across the world, telling us what they do, why they do it and how the viewer could learn from their experience.

Register your interest and hear first when we launch:
