Mapping the Magazine 3
The third Mapping the Magazine conference took place at Cardiff University in July.
I co-ordinate and teach on the Magazine Option of the Postgraduate Diploma in Journalism. It is my job to ensure that our team of tutors - all practising journalists - delivers the best possible package to students who want to learn the skills of the professional magazine journalist.
- Magazine Feature Writing
I also teach on the Masters in International Journalism.
During my career in journalism I have discovered what it is like to get your first job on a magazine only to be told, on the day you start, that it is about to close.
I know the thrill of being part of a team which takes a magazine to the Number One spot in its market; the reward of launching a successful magazine for a major publishing company; and the sheer hard work that goes into publishing your own magazine.
I have undertaken everything from making tea to negotiating with the chief buyer at WH Smith. This knowledge, and that of the team of dedicated tutors, is at your disposal when you are on the course.
I still freelance for a number of magazines, including Guitarist and Press Gazette
