Rebecca Starford: How to Start Your Own Magazine

Session Info:

Ever had the dream of starting your own magazine?

In 2010, I founded Kill Your Darlings cultural magazine with my friend, Hannah Kent, author of Burial Rites. We funded everything ourselves – and people told us we are mad! Print is dead, they said – but we persisted with our dream. Today, Kill Your Darlings continues to thrive, celebrating our 21st issue and publishing the best of Australia’s new and established writers.

This session is an in-depth discussion about everything you know to start your own magazine – and it’s a lot easier than you think. All you need is a good idea, determination and access to the internet, and you can begin!
