U Symposium, Singapore
I’m really looking forward to heading to Singapore at the end of next week for U Symposium, the first independent publishing event in that part of the world. Organised by our friends at Underscore magazine, the two days feature figures from some of the best independent magazines out there. It’d be a great line-up anywhere, but is particularly exciting given its location.
I’ll be opening proceedings with my thoughts on current editorial developments, and introducing the speakers across the days. I’ll also be live-interviewing Jop van Bennekom (Fantatstic Man) and Nathan Williams (Kinfolk); and then the following Monday I’ll be holding a half-day cover workshop.
There are still a few tickets left, so if you can join us get in quick.
And perhaps most importantly, if you’re publishing a magazine in Singapore or elsewhere in that part of Asia I’d be really interested to hear from you. This site is inevitably London-New York focused, something we’re always keen to break out of. So if you have your own magazine and are coming to the symposium, email me this week and we can meet.
