Tangible markers

This year I taught most of my practice-based magazine module via Zoom. Students worked remotely and across time zones, pivoted editorial ideas and content to meet changing reader expectations. Like the industry, they collaborated, negotiated and upskilled to create four brilliant magazines. 

Print may not be where my students live. Chances are they’ll go on to do amazing things in digital. But their magazines will always serve as a tangible marker of the work they put in to finish their degree. I’m glad they’ll have that hard copy reminder of a journey curated, edited, celebrated and completed by them.
