At the moment I’m finding it hard to think much further than Christmas dinner, but 2012 is going to happen and Printout will be ready for it.

We’ll be at The Book Club in Shoreditch on 5 January, starting as we mean to go on with a top quality line-up of independent magazine people.

It’s become customary at Printout for us to ask editors and art directors about the past – where the idea for their magazine came from, how they made it happen, and the struggles they had along the way. But this time it’s different. We’ll be at the start of a new year so we’re going to talk about the year ahead – what are their hopes and plans for 2012? What are they going to do to make sure that they not only survive the year, but blow everyone’s minds along the way.

As always our range of speakers run the gamut from big names to new starters:

Spiel started this year and has done amazing work setting itself up as a new title that mixes fashion with football in the style of the classic terrace zines. Editor Dan Byrne will be taking the train down from Liverpool to tell us how he’s planning to build on a big first year.

Boat is the magazine that heads off to a different city each issue, reporting back on what it finds there. Editor Davey Spens has promised that he has no secrets, so come along and find out where they’re going next, what they’re planning to do differently this year and why magazines and babies don’t always mix.

It’s Nice That is nothing short of an independent publishing phenomenon. As well as making their excellent magazine they also run the website, jobs board, events, brand consultancy and more. Find out exactly what that more will mean in 2012.

As if that weren’t enough we’ll also have the Printout library and music courtesy of Supermundane. All that for £5? Book your tickets now.
