Many iconic print magazines and journals in Australia started as student run projects, but what makes them unique to other publishing outlets and bodies? In this talk, Lauren Crockett will be joined by the students behind Perspektif Magazine and Inflection Journal to discuss what it takes to start, run and maintain a successful tertiary publication. Gain insights into the labour of love that is grass-roots printing initiatives and get inspired by these emerging creative’s attitudes toward print media and publishing.
