Editor – Project Calm
The special editions team at Immediate Media asked me to edit their quarterly mindfulness title, Project Calm, while the editor in chief worked on other launches. My first issue as editor was published in August 2017, full of creative DIY projects, recipes, interesting features, fun fiction, ideas and travel stories. Though the magazine has now closed, it was one of my favourite editorships – a lifestyle magazine for those who crave a bit of peace and quiet to ponder, stretch, craft and create.
When editing, I'm at ease sourcing and commissioning writers, illustrators, designers, photographers and stylists, explaining the idea, creating moodboards where necessary, briefing the right contributor, negotiating a fee and agreeing deadlines.
