WIJ is partnering with Readly, the ultimate magazine subscription that allows you to read hundreds of titles on your laptop, tablet or mobile, and which won the PPA App of the Year in 2014. The event will be at the fabulous Good Housekeeping Institute Soho, kindly hosted by Lindsay Nicholson, GH’s editorial director, who will chair our panel of experts. Readly has masses of analytics available to publishers about how we consume content and advertising online – some of it counterintuitive. This is a must for anyone who needs to understand the future of magazine publishing.

The Manchester Media Group are hosting a groundbreaking Women in Media conference at the Anthony Burgess Foundation from the 4th-6th March, to celebrate influential women in media by hearing their stories whilst empowering females working at a student level.

The conference has been organised by a team of women from the Manchester Media Group inspired into action after we noticed how dominated the field already is by men in these early stages. We wanted to try do something to change this and empower the female students at our university and hopefully others to enter the world of journalism and media and to have confidence in themselves and their abilities.
Doors will open for the conference on Friday at 6pm for the launch a canapés and drinks reception, opening speeches and live entertainment headlined by Sarah de Warren. On the Saturday we will have a day of workshops and keynote speeches starting from 10am until 4pm when we will have a networking drinks reception. The Sunday will consist of three panel events.
Speakers we have already confirmed are: Louise Court, Director of Editorial Strategy and Content at Hearst Magazines UK; Helen Pidd, Northern Editor, The Guardian; Jane Bradley, Investigations Correspondent, Buzzfeed and Olivia Jones, Drivetime Presenter, The Hits Radio; Daisy Buchanan, Grazia magazine; Katie Hind, Mirror; Becky Meehan, BBC; and many more.
Tickets for the conference can be booked on our website
