Helping magazine publishers launch and grow

Hi I’m Steve Tiernan. I am the founder of Magazine Workshop. If you are planning to start a magazine or need some fresh ideas for an existing publication I am here to help. My goal is to help you understand the processes and overcome the challenges that you will face on the road to building a sustainable magazine business.

The work that I do is guided by these principles

  • I am an expert in magazine printing, free and paid distribution, subscription marketing and the creation of digital magazines.
  • I use my skills and experience to help my customers start magazines and build profitable publishing businesses.
  • I never make a promise that I can’t deliver.

I have spent over 25 years working in magazines, most recently as Business Manager at Private Eye. I started my business in 2011, you see, I kept meeting people who had fantastic ideas and wanted to start a magazine…but did not know where to begin. Often the people I met were bewildered by print, newsstand distribution and subscription acquisition. They could produce a brilliant magazine but did not know how to get it out into the world.

Today I spend my time helping independent magazine publishers launch and grow. I also write the Magazine Workshop blog…no nonsense advice that will help you start your magazine and build your publishing business.

How can I help you?

If you are planning your first magazine launch then I am here for you.

Contact me today with a brief outline of your project and you have my personal commitment that I will get back to you within 48 hours with my ideas and suggestions
