Founding Director & Editor-In-Chief

November 11, 2022 (Updated )

Can you believe it’s been a whole year since last November? No, me neither. But that also means it’s time for us to launch the second edition of our magazine/workbook The Yearbook. After selling an incredible 300 copies last year, we’re beyond excited to bring you the next edition of our only IRL product, to help you navigate your journalism career in 2023.

The Yearbook is more than just a magazine — it’s a 100-page ring-bound guide to the year ahead, filled with in-depth features to inspire and guide you, as well as personal development exercises and progress trackers you can return to again and again. Plus, every single penny goes back towards running our fellowship scheme, which helps people starting out in journalism.

You can buy your copy as a one-off for just £11.50 here.

Or take out a ‘Tea and Cake’ membership with us on Steady and you’ll receive it completely free of charge.

(Our membership also comes with tonnes of other great benefits including free access to all our practical workshops and events, the Journo Resources book club, a Discord channel with live opportunities, and much more.)

Plus, we’re currently offering a second free independent magazine with every order — it’s a mystery which one you get, but we promise they’re all great.

Featuring the work of our 2022 fellows, and a gorgeous custom illustration from Thea de Gallier, The Yearbook 2023 is 100 pages of inspiration, planning, and fun to help you navigate your way through the media industry.

The magazine will ship in January 2023, making it a perfect festive or New Year’s gift, but our print run is extremely limited, so we would advise pre-ordering early to avoid disappointment!

You can order a one-off here, or sign-up for a Tea and Cake membership here. We are also able to provide gift certificates if you’re buying for the festive season.

The Yearbook – Supporting The Journo Resources Fellowship

We’ve now almost completed our second year of the Journo Resources fellowship, which brings together people from across the UK looking to start a career in journalism. The scheme gives them 1-2-1 mentoring, a paid commission, and a series of career development workshops.

Across both of our cohorts, more than three-quarters have since gone on to further paid work in the media, or other funding and learning opportunities. Our fellows now work across the industry, including the BBC, Insider, The Big Issue, PinkNews and even Journo Resources.

However, we haven’t yet raised the funding we need for year three. That’s why The Yearbook is so important, with every penny raised going to support the next round of Journo Resources Fellows in 2023.

Buy as part of our membership here or as a one-off purchase here.
