How can you create an editorial structure and strategy that allows you to convey your organization’s key messages, cover those “yup, it’s the annual awards again” events, keep key stakeholders happy–and produce a magazine readers will not only find informative but actually enjoy? Join Kim Pittaway for a session focused on covering your key pillars, maximizing replatformed content, managing stakeholder expectations–and creating a magazine you’ll be proud to publish. We’ll look at how to make the most of front and back of book sections, creating impact with long-form and visual features, and ideas for how to fill the gaps when features fall through.

Speaker: Kim Pittaway

Just like a great music festival, each issue of your magazine needs a compelling “headline act.” It might be a gripping long-form feature. It could be an editorial package that kicks butt. Or maybe it’s a photo feature that delights the eye and engages the mind. Join Kim Pittaway for a session exploring how to conceptualize, assign, edit and manage these headline features – and how to execute them well without killing your contributors or staff in the process.
