What goes into making a magazine or book? As an editor, my role has been to pull together the right team, manage photoshoots, handle budgets, oversee design and production, brief and liaise with freelancers, and ensure stakeholder and advertising commitments are met, along with writing, editing and proofing content.
I have worked on 85+ magazines and books covering food, wine, fashion, the arts, home and garden, fiction and poetry, business, car racing, agriculture… just about any topic you can think of. I’ve done this as an inhouse editor and as a freelancer with major media outlets, working on newsagent titles, self-selection magazines (that’s free mags) and custom publications.
Here’s some you might recognise.
