RAW PRINT LIVE (BOSHEMIA + OM NOM)



[ PHOTOGRAPHY: Myself ]

Yesterday was the last Raw Print Live of the academic season. If you're a print lover and live anywhere near Nottingham you need to get yourself to one of these when they start again in October. Held on the first Wednesday of every month, Raw Print hosts a public lecture where they invite the founders of independent magazines to give a talk on how they started out in the industry. I find independent magazines really exciting and would love to start my own one day so being able to get this insider information is invaluable to me. 

The speakers were from Boshemia and Om Nom magazines. Boshemia is an art and culture magazine with a focus on Feminism and Om Nom is an ethical food magazine. One important lesson I took away from both talks was that you need to find your niche. If someone else is already doing what you want to do then unless you can do it a lot better, you have to do something nobody is. Another piece of advice from the speakers was that you have to be passionate about your magazine. You will not succeed without this passion as when you start out it will be your labour of love.
