With the theme of ‘Fight for your audience’, this year’s Magfest will host some truly excellent speakers. Headliners include Vanessa Kingori, GQ’s publisher, and Ernst-Jan Pfauth, publisher of the Dutch Slow Journalism website De Correspondent. Take a look at the event’s full list of speakers here.
