WANTING TO GO INTO THE MAGAZINE INDUSTRY…

Due to so many deadlines within the past month I haven’t been able to write on here as much as I wanted to,so I thought I’d share what’s been on my mind since I’ve been away…
PJ-BT054_FASHIO_G_20140204150652Ever since I got my hands on a glossy front page, I’ve been fascinated by the magazine world and how they produce and satisfy to such a high level for our consumer-crazy obsessed needs. So many people are rushing to the doors to be part of the industry and I would like to join the bandwagon.

My heart has been set on the publishing business for quite a few years now and I’ve started to feel more prepared since I’ve got involved with the ropes through my studies and work experience. At the moment I’m working as an Intern at Sheffield’s local- Exposed Magazine, the team have been so welcoming in letting me be a part of their work and I’m loving every damn minute.

When I see that my work has been published professionally, it just makes me want to work even harder in the ever growing industry and I have set an ultimate goal that I will have created something small within the next year or so.

I guess this why I’m writing on this blog… maybe it’s a temporary thing, practice for the real thing or just a diary I want to share? I don’t know, I guess I’m just doing what I enjoy and I’m pretty happy with that.

I’ll be starting to prep for my final year in the summer for an Applied project, I’m hoping to carry on the project afterwards if it’s a success, (plus if i’ve got a good grade for it!)

The only issue is – in my opinion, I believe that I will need help with this if i’m going to take it seriously, so that’s one thing I need to tackle ASAP after the final project of my studies. Music and fashion seem to be my main interest so I’m going with these topics to be the main course, obviously with a few added appetisers to tease your reading minds.

What topics would you like to see in the magazine? If you have any ideas feel free to comment. It’s nice to know that I’ve already had so many readers come and visit my blog, so thank you to those who have read my posts.

I’ll be writing again soon.

One thought on “WANTING TO GO INTO THE MAGAZINE INDUSTRY…

  1. Gossip is huge in the magazine industry at the minute. Especially with the number of reality TV shows running at present. If you can build that in, whilst maintaining the integrity of what you want to write about (fashion and music) that would stand you in good stead.

    Also, depending on whether you are going to be targeting a large audience with your magazine, I would say variety is key. Include your thoughts on the weeks news or the latest film releases to keep readers intrigued.

    Best,
