Editor of the British Lung Foundation’s member magazine

The British Lung Foundation (BLF) produces a quarterly member magazine called Breathing Space.Packed with medical features about lung disease, lifestyle articles, celebrity interviews, puzzles,the organisation’s news and the latest on developments in lung health, Breathing Space is a must-read for anyone with a lung condition.

Facing a staff shortage, the BLF commissioned me as Editor for the autumn 2011 issue.

The challenge
To edit the magazine, from commissioning right through to signing the issue off for print. I worked with the BLF’s publication manager to understand the magazine’s audience and style. I then commissioned and edited medical and lifestyle features and news pieces from medical experts, BLF staff and other writers. I also worked with a designer to lay out, sub edit and proofread the issue, before taking final responsibility for signing it off for print.

The impact
An action-packed, great read for people affected by lung disease, written and laid out in the magazine’s traditional style and tone.
