Morningside Matters, community magazine in Edinburgh.

From arts events to campaigns, these hyper-local community magazines for three areas of Edinburgh (Morningside, Corstorphine, the New Town) provided information for residents in the neighbourhood. Stories and photos were focused on the local area, and there was advertisting for local businesses.

Readers contributed storiesĀ and photos, making the content relevant and interesting (and not decided on solely by an editor on the outside). It is possible to find out everything online these days. But the feedback about these magazines proved there’s still an appetite for reading a publication you can actually hold in your hands, browse through and return to throughout the month – provided the content is engaging and a good read. Print publications are a great way of displaying photos too.
