St Andrews in Focus - Issue 63 Mar / Apr 2014

From the Editor

Flora Selwyn

I’ve got the Deadline Blues, yeah; you know, that date on the calendar when lots of people wait till the last possible minute to submit copy for publication. Naively I once thought that two months between issues of this magazine would give me a leisurely timescale for editing, proof reading, all that stuff needed to produce copy for the designer, before the printer comes into it. I’m not complaining. Someone once asked me what I would do if I ran out of copy. That would never happen in St Andrews, I said! And of course I was happily quite right. It’s extremely rewarding. Nevertheless, as I keep repeating ad nauseam, the magazine should be a business for the town, employing people in the way all other magazines do. Maybe, if I go on repeating myself, the penny will eventually drop, setting this magazine on a proper path to prosperity, with St Andrews the rightful beneficiary! The Professional Publishers Association (PPA Scotland) states, “The publishing industry in Scotland is thriving, with more than 190 companies producing over 700 titles.” This magazine should be part of it properly. Anyone for business?
