Join Magazine Training International as we begin our expansion into Africa! You will learn the essential steps for successful magazine publishing through the intensive Magazine Publishing Institute. Don’t miss this opportunity to learn from some of the most highly-respected Christian publishing professionals in the world.

The training program includes a seven-day Magazine Publishing Institute with three tracks (magazine editing, management, and design). The institute will be held 30 September – 6 October in Nairobi, Kenya, and will be taught by nine trainers from around the world. Bring your staff members and allow each person to learn in depth the skills needed to perform well in their role as publisher, editor, or designer for the benefit of the magazine. As a team, you will learn how the various roles work together to create an effective publishing plan and publication.

We expect that another key benefit of the program for participants will be the opportunity to meet one another, share triumphs and fears, and learn from one another. Magazine workers scattered throughout the breadth of Africa often have a sense of isolation and may easily become discouraged. A conference like this offers desperately-needed encouragement and refreshment.
