Hope and pride

Joanna Cummings
Practical Publishing


Well, I was ok.

Craft mags like mine have done brilliantly during lockdown, appealing as they do to people stuck for ‘something to do’. I’ve been so proud to see that.

Now, though, my magazine is closing. It’s one of many casualties of publishing in lockdown.

On the unpredictable newsstand of the future, it’s simply not sustainable. I’m really sad.

I don’t know what’s next, for me or for magazine publishing. I know I (and we) need to be more adaptable than ever. I just hope I (and we) still get the chance to give our readers ‘something to do’.
