Eurozine Online Workshops
Eurozine’s Online Workshops provide a platform for cultural journalists to share their expertise with each other as well as external experts and thus develop their publishing activities.
Upcoming Online Workshops
COVID-19’s impact on cultural journals, part II: How to save print!
Eurozine will hold a second workshop on the impacts of COVID-19 on Monday, 18 May 2020 at 11:00-12:30 (CET) to share best practices and experiences on how to maintain print publishing in times of hampered production and the disrupted distribution of paper journals.
What role can digital methods play in saving print? How can lost income from print sales be recouped? How can print journals be revived after the pandemic?
The workshop will be moderated by Eurozine’s editor Sarah Waring and will start with a round of three short presentations by editors from Eurozine’s partner journals who will share their journals’ experiences, including with hybrid (print and online) models for publishing and sales.
The meeting will be held via Zoom. If you would like to participate please write to Simona Jazbnisek (firstname.lastname@example.org).
