Our first magazine

Organisation is my strong suit.

I’d stir checklists and spreadsheets into my morning coffee if I could, and top it off with a well-rehearsed PowerPoint. But planning and delegating and managing without leaving the flat, much less grabbing a team lunch before the next editorial meeting, is awfully anticlimactic.

And so although my forte is deflated somewhat, I can’t think of anything more rewarding than flicking through the pages of our first magazine. We made that. Along the way, we became nocturnal, we became Zoom experts, and we watched hours of YouTube tutorials. I’m still hungry for an old-fashioned brainstorming session.
