aAh! - Magazine Journalism and Design Production Workshops

19th July to 9th September
This opportunity is aimed at all students with an interest in the vibrant world of independent magazines. Our sessions will build your journalism and creative magazine layout skills by exploring aAh! Magazine’s latest print brief and focussing on practice-based learning using Adobe InDesign.

Register your interest and availability for this activity here

Get to grips with how your own student magazine is produced and put your new skills into practice by pitching your work for our upcoming print magazine – The FRESHERS Issue. You can also choose to use this opportunity to work on your own independent magazine project ideas and receive feedback.

On campus and online sessions will feature beginner-level interactive exercises covering the entire editorial and production process and additional resources including LinkedIn Learning will enable you to build your skills at your own pace, in your own time.

aAh!’s writing and content briefs will include features, profiles, how-tos, Q&As, previews, reviews, listicles, photography, illustration and more, based around the theme “FRESHERS”. You will then work alongside our Graphic Design Collective and be supported to design print magazine spreads using Adobe InDesign and pitch your work to be considered for publication.

The FRESHERS Issue Brief

This special mini issue of aAh! will feature a guide to all Manchester has to offer. We will shine a spotlight on the freshest spots in our city and serve up budget-friendly recipes, share advice, opportunities and experiences.

Packed with tips and tricks to help new and returning students navigate university life, The FRESHERS Issue will be essential reading for all looking to get the most of their time studying in the best city in the world.
