I took a trip to London with Sara Domville, fellow Young Producer Kajol Lally and Rob from SomeWhereTo. We went to Live Magazine, a magazine created by and for Young People.
They reflect innercity life in London and culture also covering a wide rage of issues. Each Young Person who works on Live Magazine is assigned a role within the magazine. I think that this is an invaluable idea to bring forward to the Blaze Magazine when and if we start creating our own.
We spent a while asking the editor questions in order to learn from Live Magazine’s experience, this was good for me as a Blogger to find out how magazines are put together which are run by Young People, showing me that it is possible to combine arts with writing in order to get people interested in the arts which I didnt believe would be that successful before visiting Live Magazine.
It was great to see Young People at the centre, taking key roles and driving the project forward, whilst learning new skills and passing on their own skills to others. It would be great if other areas, like Lancashire and Cumbria could have their own magazine just like Live Magazine.
