A PhD in magazines

I have a PhD in magazines. Literally.

I’m interested in how they construct an identity for themselves and for their readers and how much that matters on both sides; I remember walking around at college with my copy of sfx artfully arranged so as to poke out of my tote bag, title outwards.

Now I write for magazines when I want to speak to people who care about something as passionately as I do, even if they disagree with me.

Digital is fine, but now that we know each other a little better… do you want to talk paper density?
