Virtual studio visit with Potluck magazine founder Rhia Cook

Buckle up for our latest virtual adventure this month as we head to the buzzing creative hub that is Dundee to have a wee nosey around the home studio of Potluck Magazine Editor Rhia Cook. Potluck is a collaborative magazine dedicated to sharing your stories about cooking, eating, and sharing food.

Working as a one-woman army, Rhia does everything from concept development to illustration, article selection, editing, and layout, not to mention marketing and sales, in order to put out 3 stunning magazines per annum. It’s no small task, but it’s moving in the right direction.

Rhia prides herself on working ethically with all contributors and has devised a profit-sharing system for everyone involved in each production as well as donating 10% of all sales to the Trussell Trust (the UK’s biggest food bank organisation).

If you’ve ever dreamt of putting together your very own magazine focused on the subjects that matter to you, or if you’re keen to cut your teeth writing for a boutique magazine, then don’t miss this session.
