Join Magazine Training International as we continue the MTI in Africa program with a conference in Ghana in September 2021!

Sign up for email alerts.

The four-day Digital Publishing Workshop will cover trends, tools, and strategies for publishing online in a way that connects best with your readers. Because of the uncertainty of travel and unknown status of group gatherings at this time, the workshop will tentatively take place on-site in Ghana, as well as virtually. An international team of trainers will teach the workshop.

Your magazine has great content and a message your world needs to hear. But, are you taking advantage of all of the publishing opportunities to get your message out? Whether you have a print publication and you’re thinking of producing a digital version, or whether you don’t yet have a magazine, but you’re considering if digital is the way to go, this workshop is for you. You will get a fact-paced overview of the digital world of publishing, and you’ll learn about the issues you’ll face as a digital publisher.

Prior to this workshop, there will be a five-day Introduction to Magazine Publishing Course and a one-day Hands-on Magazine Startup Workshop.
