Birthday revamp for women's title

A magazine which is partly written by up-and-coming journalists is celebrating its third birthday with a redesign.

Yorkshire Women’s Life, which comes out three times a year, will see the colour palette change with the seasons and the introduction of a news in brief section. There will be more photographs incorporated in the news pages.

The title was set up by four graduates who understood the difficulties of starting a writing career when you have no professional experience.

Editor Dawn Marie France commissions freelance writers for each issue, including many graduate journalists who are looking for experience as well as women freelances who are experts in their field.

The handbag-sized title covers international, local and national news as well as the arts and women’s issues.

France said: “The new design reflects the cultural diversity of our readership as well as the magazine’s inclusiveness.”

Funded by the millennium commission, 15,000 copies are distributed to subscribers, galleries and other leisure outlets in the region.

The redesigned issue is available in November.
