Today's Media Guardian tells of a magazine run by enterprising journalism students at Goldsmiths, University of London.
It's WordPress-based publication EastLondonLines.
The students are 'to build an audience from scratch, market it, make it attractive to advertisers and make contact with … potential sources of revenue.'
It's clearly an active site with an emphasis on breaking news, as you'd expect from journalism students.
Our effort at student magazine journalism is much less news-driven, but this article vindicates my decision to create a WordPress-based niche magazine, Behind the Spin, two years ago.
I've had some interest in the vacancies on this magazine and will be announcing who has been appointed very soon.
