The Modern MagazinePosted by Steve Watson on Friday, September 27th, 2013
I’m really looking forward to The Modern Magazine, Jeremy’s day-long magazine extravaganza on 16 October, which marks the launch of his new book. There are some pretty stellar names in the line-up, including Richard Turley from Bloomberg Businessweek, Tyler Brûlé of Monocle and Patrick Waterhouse from Colors.
But he hasn’t forgotten the little guys, and there will be a smattering of small independent publishers scattered throughout the schedule. Cathy Olmedillas (Anorak), Matt Lee (Delayed Gratification), Rosa Park (Cereal) and Davey Spens (Boat) will be speaking about why they make independent magazines, while David Jacobs (29th Street Publishing) will represent those publishers who are finding a digital-only route to readers. And at the end of the day we’ll all come together for an on-stage discussion about what we’ve seen during the day, and what’s coming next.
It should be a fantastic day – I’m thinking of it as basically the same as Printout, but not in a basement and with a much scarier audience. Tickets are on sale now and from what I hear they’re going fast, so get in there quick!
