READ MORE River’s Claire Irvin appointed Chair of BSME 14.01.2016 The British Society of Magazine Editors has announced that its 2016 Chair is Claire Irvin, Editorial Content Director at River.

Events in 2015 included breakfasts with Joanna Coles, Editor-in-Chief of US Cosmopolitan, Glenda Bailey MBE, Editor-in-Chief of US Harper’s Bazaar, and Luke Lewis, Editor-in-Chief of Buzzfeed, as well as a forum on indie magazines and other networking events.

Actually, the word February is only about 100 years old. In Shakespeare’s time, it was known as Feverell, and Isaac Newton would have called it Februeer. February used to be a time for purification and cleansing before the spring. Indeed, the passing of Shrove Tuesday and the beginning of Lent was a time for fasting and quietness.

Its key focuses of food, health and fitness tap directly into the zeitgeist and have masspirational appeal. It understands that there are many reasons for wanting to eat healthy: eat healthier versions of the food you love, eat to beat an illness, free from recipes to suit a specialist diet, and weight management – all within the constraints of a busy lifestyle. The Changing Role of the Consumer Magazine Editor 26.11.2015 'Editors nowadays have to produce more content, across more platforms, but with less resource. They have to be both commercial and creative, to continue taking full responsibility, whilst ceding total control. It’s pressured, writes Claire Irvin, but still a privilege.

The 10th month of the Roman calendar is full to the brim with myths, legends and a few other things that might have actually happened. Obviously, the elephant in the room is the festival of Christmas. It dominates our national psyche, calendar and spending habits throughout this month – and even before!

But the ‘greatest story ever told’ has much more to it than meets the eye.
