Ok, so here's a sneak preview of the new look LIVE Magazine. For those of you who don't know, this 48 page quarterly mag is put together entirely by 13 - 22 year olds at our Brixton HQ. With Corrine Burton and Mahta Hassanzadeh effectively graduating on to Saturday Magazine - a project our sister company Livity have put together for USC, the clothing retailers - we've had to pass the buck on at LIVE. Jelani Dascosta-Best has been heading up the re-design, assisted by a bunch of new talent that's come to the south London stable. Sian Anderson steps up as editor, with Diana Nortey as her right hand woman. I'd like to congratulate all the team (too many names to remember at this moment without it in front of me) on a fantastic job. The mag hits streets next week and content includes a look at domestic violence, living with two mums, an interview with the urban smuggler Andrew Pritchard, a debate for and against Black History Month, our new job section, Busy Signal, a MySpace detox, and much more. There's also a fantabulous photostory on why not to smoke with a Ctrl.Alt.Shift poster on the flip. Not bad for a free mag huh! Keep an eye out for the new website launching soon too.
