Pick up issue six of the Lecture in Progress newspaper

The sixth edition of the Lecture in Progress newspaper has landed!

This issue, we are championing the importance of building and evolving in your own time. Self-pressure and expectation can be your own worst enemy when you’re only just starting out, and a rejection or unanswered email can feel like a massive knock-back. But, as many of our contributors show, these inevitable hurdles are often a chance to reassess, learn and grow.

We’ve gathered guidance on everything from what job interviewers are looking for in ideal candidates to how to write a great cold email. And if you’re setting up as a freelancer, we explore how to make sure you get paid on time, the art of getting noticed by potential clients and how to nail a dream commission.

Hear from the likes of digital creative Johanna Jaskowska, theatre designer Tom Scutt, BRICKS magazine editor Tori West, film director Akinola Davies, photographer Max Miechowski, The Guardian’s global deputy creative director Chris Clarke and fashion designer Paul Smith.

See below for where you can pick up a copy around the UK! And if you’d like to request copies for a new stockist or for your university, please get in touch by emailing hello@lectureinprogress.com.
