In this episode, Philippe Perez speaks with writers pursuing careers in the vibrant and dynamic world of print mediums.

While it may be a challenge for some publications to survive in the digital era, many writers still find seeing their words on paper a beautiful thing.

We hear from those in the industry about ways writers can get their ideas published in magazines and print newspapers, the working day of a print journalist, and the battle for relevancy at a time when many readers are turning to screen rather than paper.
