Blog Post By Sophie Jones

A big hello from PM's new deputy editor

It’s approaching the end of my first week the Print Monthly office and what a week it’s been. It’s been a time of revelations—with Benny Landa popping up for an exclusive interview with our editor about Landa’s new E100m investment—and of farewells—as we say goodbye to print legends Felix Dennis and Alfred John Blake. We’re also working hard on the July magazine, in which my first feature on RT Litho will appear. Tres exciting.

Coming straight from completing a diploma in magazine journalism at Cardiff University (and I mean straight – the wrist strain from frantic finals feature writing is lingering still), I was more than a little anxious to be launching straight into career in business journalism. My background is in English Literature and movie news writing at Berlin-based moviepilot.com, so you can understand my trepidation. However, PM is such a welcoming place, and Brendan and Harry and the whole office have been so supportive, I can’t help but feel at home here—as soon as I get my own mug, that is.

It helps a little that the print industry is somewhat in my blood. My father ran the family print business for 40 years, before retiring and becoming an artist, so I have grown up around print news. I’ve witnessed the ups and downs of the industry over the past 25 years or so from a very personal place, and am looking forward to getting to know more of the technical side of the industry.

I’m sad to be replacing the wonderful Harriet as deputy editor, who is clearly going to be sorely missed, but she’s taken me under her wing in her last week and I hope to fill her shoes (which seem to be lying abandoned under the table in this midsummer heat) the very best I can.

So, here’s to a great first week, anticipating no massive Friday disasters, and to my time here at Print Monthly!
