LIVE ONLINE CLASS: How to launch an independent magazine


We will be running a live online class over Zoom on Wednesday 2nd September 2020 from 7pm-9pm to take you through the nuts and bolts of launching and running a successful independent magazine.  This event is now sold out but we’ll be putting up new dates soon.

In this class you will…

  • Learn how to turn your magazine idea into reality
  • Find out how to identify a successful editorial niche
  • Understand the nuts and bolts of commissioning writers and designers
  • See how to pull together a winning subscription, distribution and marketing plan
  • Discover how to survive and thrive beyond the first year

You will leave with a good insight into the independent publishing industry and a strong idea of how to set about launching an independent magazine.

The details
The class, which is limited to a maximum of 15 people, will take place over Zoom from 7pm-9pm.

The tutors
In January 2011 Rob Orchard and Marcus Webb launched Delayed Gratification, a quarterly news magazine that returns to big events after the dust has settled. They’ve condensed a decade of the lessons they’ve learned into this tip-filled two hour course.

Tickets cost £15+VAT for subscribers and £30+VAT for non-subscribers. We’ll ask for your delivery postcode to verify your subscription when you book your ticket.
