How to launch an independent magazine | Online masterclass | 11th January 2024
We will be running a live online class on Zoom from 6pm-8.30pm UK time on Thursday 11th January 2024 to teach you everything you need to launch an independent publication.
In this online class taught over Zoom 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
- Be shown how to create a realistic budget for your first issue
- 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. After the class we’ll send you a directory of useful companies and contacts to help get you on your way.
The class will take place online, over Zoom. The class will be limited to a maximum of 15 participants.
As an additional benefit of the class we offer the option to participants to be put 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.
Tickets cost £36 (including VAT) for subscribers and £60 (including VAT) for non-subscribers. We’ll ask for your delivery postcode to verify your subscription when you book your ticket.
In January 2011 Rob Orchard co-launched Delayed Gratification, a quarterly news magazine that returns to big events after the dust has settled. He’s condensed 12 years of the lessons he and his co-editor Marcus Webb have learned into this tip-filled course. He and Marcus have won Independent Editors of the Year three times at the British Society of Magazine Editors awards.
Haven’t joined the Slow Journalism revolution yet? A subscription to Delayed Gratification starts at just £40 and entitles you to big discounts on all our classes. Click here to sign up now.
Just wanted to stop by to say that I spent a great 2.5 hours learning and feeling utterly inspired to finally get on with my magazine idea thanks to @dgquarterly’s own Rob Orchard. What a wonderful workshop! ????
