Immediate Media launches Mollie Makes in Italy
Immediate Media has launched craft magazine Mollie Makes in Italy.
Ellie Austin scored a job at Immediate Media as a Features Writer for Radio Times after graduating from the Magazine Journalism MA course at City University. Here she talks about working in the fast-paced world of a major weekly magazine and the power of a good coffee.
The launch follows an exclusive licensing arrangement with specialist publisher Edizioni Raffi.
This is the fifth international license for Mollie Makes, which also has editions in Netherlands and France.
Tim Hudson, Director of International Licensing & Syndication at Immediate, said: "We are delighted to be extending Mollie Makes into Italy with our valued partner Edizioni Raffi.
"This will be the first time the magazine will appear in Italian, meeting a rising demand for craft titles amongst a younger audience. Mollie Makes is experiencing strong growth internationally with several more launches in the pipeline.”
Andrea Naggi, CEO of Edizioni Raffi, added: "We are proud to be launching Mollie Makes on the Italian market, where the magazine is already well-known and represents the international benchmark among craft titles. The community of Italian crafters is rapidly growing and is expecting high-standard products: Mollie Makes is the right answer to such expectations”.
Mollie Makes is published bi-monthly and will be on sale from October.
