We’re taking Stack into the real world.

When we surveyed subscribers this summer we asked what we could do to improve the Stack experience, and lots of people responded asking for live events. So on Monday 10 November we’ll hold the first Stack live event at The Book Club in Shoreditch, and we’re kicking things off with a very special guest.

This month’s Stack delivery is Hello Mr, and Ryan Fitzgibbon, the magazine’s founder, publisher and creative director, is flying in for an exclusive show. He’s based in the USA, so this is a rare opportunity for British magazine fans to hear from him and I’m incredibly excited to have him over here.

The venue is tried and tested – Jeremy and I have been running Printout at The Book Club for the last three years – but regulars will notice some differences for this first Stack event. Whereas Printout brings together several magazine makers to approach a wide topic, the Stack event will zoom in and focus on just one magazine. Ryan will begin the evening by giving a short presentation on Hello Mr, explaining his background and how he came to start the magazine, and then we’ll dive into the current issue in detail with a live Q&A.

We’ll be getting into the nitty gritty of cover selection, commissioning stories and running a magazine that’s on the up, and of course we’ll open it up to the floor, giving you the chance to ask him anything you want. Or if you don’t like putting your hand up in front of a roomful of people, stick around for the music and drinks afterwards and you could grab five minutes with Ryan one on one.

Tickets cost £5.95 from our Eventbrite page, so if this sounds like the event for you, head over there and reserve your place.

We’ve also got 30 free tickets for Stack subscribers to claim – current subscribers in the UK and Europe will receive an email later today with their discount code. If you’re a subscriber outside Europe or your email doesn’t arrive by the end of the day, just drop us a line and we’ll reply with the code.

I love the idea of taking Stack out into the real world, so thanks very much to everyone who suggested it. If all goes well this will be the first in a series of a regular monthly events, featuring the makers of Stack magazines talking about what they do. Come join us!
