The world of independent and niche publishing is also starting to take hold in Italy and many write to us to tell us about your idea of a magazine and to get advice on how to take the first steps in the sector and make your project come true.
That's why we launch the first Frab's course. We were born with the idea of creating independent magazine culture, of changing the perception of what periodical publishing is and can be, and this seems to us the best way to do it.
WHO IS IT FOR?
Our course includes three lessons, three modules, for those who want to create their own magazine from scratch, for those who have just started their own project or simply for those who want to know how a magazine is made in practice, get to know the world of independent periodical publishing, from its history, through the editorial line and the business plan.
