LIVE ONLINE CLASS: How to launch an independent magazine
We will be running a live online class over Zoom on Wednesday 10th March from 7pm-9pm to take you through the nuts and bolts of launching and running a successful independent magazine.
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 class, which is limited to a maximum of 15 people, will take place over Zoom from 7pm-9pm.
As an additional benefit of the class we aim to put all participants in touch with one another afterwards, to form a group whose members can help one another with support and advice when they set out to launch their publications. If you would prefer not to share your details with the group, you can email us at email@example.com and let us know. We’ll also give you another opportunity to opt out after the class has taken place.
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 £20+VAT for subscribers and £40+VAT for non-subscribers. We’ll ask for your delivery postcode to verify your subscription when you book your ticket.
Haven’t joined the Slow Journalism revolution yet? A one-year subscription to Delayed Gratification starts at just £36 and entitles you to big discounts on all our classes.
Did a great online course with @dgquarterly last night on launching an independent magazine. Loads of really useful insights and practical advice, and very clearly presented and structured. Totally recommend it.

I’ve attended two fantastic evening workshop run by Rob from @dgquarterly
It’s been over a week since the last one, and I’m still waking up on a Saturday morning perusing and pursuing ideas that have taken seed from those courses.
