New “Introduction to Magazine Publishing” book
The how-to book of magazine publishing
The wisdom and experience of 11 Christian publishing professionals shines through the pages of this practical how-to book of magazine publishing. In the 212 information-packed pages of the Introduction to Magazine Publishing, you’ll find an overview of everything you need to know to publish a successful Christian magazine.
Whether you have a great idea for a new magazine or you want to strengthen and improve an existing one, you will find the tips and tools you need.
The book is divided into separate sections on magazine business, editing, and design, which may be dipped into for information on how to solve specific problems. Or, the book may be read from cover to cover for a complete understanding of the entire publishing process.
You’ll discover how to apply sound business principles to establish your magazine on a solid foundation. You’ll learn how to work with writers and how to craft articles that touch the hearts and lives of readers. And you’ll master design principles to create an attractive magazine that draws and engages readers. Although most information is geared to print publishing, in each of the three sections you’ll learn how to apply the principles to a digital magazine.
Introduction to Magazine Publishing is the result of decades of experience training magazine staff worldwide and brings together in one place the fundamental magazine publishing principles necessary to successful magazine publishing.
The book is edited by Sharon Mumper, president of Magazine Training International, a non-profit organization that has provided publishing resources and training worldwide for 31 years.
