Asian Geographic The Read
Asian Geographic The Read is styled on Reader’s Digest and distributed in schools across Singapore through an arrangement between the publisher, Asia Geographic, and the Ministry of Education. The magazine is handbag size, around 120 pages and published every six weeks to fit in with the Singapore school schedule.
I was managing editor for only two issues — a brief but enjoyable tenure. I was responsible for the entire content working with one internal assistant, and a group of external freelancers and photo agencies. I produced most of the material myself, conducting interviews and writing stories and reviews. And I got to interview Guy Garvey, so I’m not complaining.
