These days virtually anyone with a laptop and an internet connection can make their own print magazine, and thousands of people are doing exactly that. But has something been lost amongst the democratisation? It used to take years of work to become an editor, but today’s independent magazine makers can become editors virtually overnight.
For this Printout we bring together four of the most interesting and exciting editors working in independent magazines today to hear about their own progression to the big job, whether they think the role of the editor is changing today, and what magazine makers should be doing to ensure the best quality results.
