It's been said, "everyone has a novel in them" – the updated version might be "everyone's got a magazine in them". With the creative blossoming of the independent magazine scene over the last five-to-ten years, the new way people seek out, buy and read magazines, it certainly feels more possible than ever to turn a magaine-shaped lightbulb moment into a living, breathing printed reality that turns up on the mag racks at regular intervals. 

But despite the opening up of the industry, magazine-making and selling is still a tricky business. So expert insight and advice is always welcome. Big guns of the independent magazine scene in London MagCulture, come to the rescue with a one-day masterclass in the art of magazine-making, featuring talks from a range of magazine makers, including Grafik's own Angharad Lewis (author of So You Want to Publish A Magazine?). She will appear alongside Danielle Pender (Riposte), Simon Esterson (Eye), Kirsten Algera (MacGuffin), Alison Branch (Park Communications), Sasha Simic (Central Books) and MagCulture's Jeremy Leslie for an intimate day of talk, tuition and tips.

What could otherwise be a daunting and complicated process will be demystified and discussed.
