frankie magazine editor Jo Walker will be dropping in on the Press and Society seminar this afternoon to give her views on lifestyle journalism, magazines, the state of the media and anything else magazine-journalism-related that she and students may care to talk about.
Jo has worked as a freelance writer, street press reviewer and section editor and head of features for the Press Association in London, the UK’s top wire service.
Since 2008, Jo has been editor of frankie and now spends most of her days chasing photographers, pretending to know about crochet and asking musicians what their favourite board game is.
Launched in 2006, frankie is ‘a national bi-monthly based in Australia, aimed at women (and men) looking for a magazine that’s as smart, funny, sarcastic, friendly, cute, rude, arty, curious and caring as they are’.
We’ll be in Peribolos West 219 and kicking off at 2pm today. All welcome.
