The Week Junior launches summer special QUIZZLER
The brand new summer special Quizzler is being launched by the award-winning team behind The Week Junior
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.
Quizzler is a new, 100-page magazine that is packed with brain-bending puzzles, fascinating facts and a mind-stretching mega quiz, that has been created to keep boredom at bay for eight- to 14-year-olds. With a variety of word, number, picture and logic puzzles along with a 200-question quiz on subjects including animals, science, sport, books and entertainment, children will have lots of fun while putting their knowledge to the test.
The magazine has been put together by the multi award-winning team behind The Week Junior, the UK’s fastest growing magazine.
Since The Week Junior’s launch in November 2015, the magazine has gone from strength to strength and is now one of the fastest-growing magazines in the UK with a 29.1% y-o-y increase at the last ABC. The launch of Quizzler came in response to consumer demand for more interactive content.
Editor-in-chief of The Week Junior, Anna Bassi, said, “Our readers love doing puzzles, and with the long school holidays about to begin, we think that Quizzler is the ideal way to keep children happily occupied this summer. Whether they are lounging on a beach, passing a rainy day or travelling to distant destinations, all they’ll need is their Quizzler and a bit of brainpower!”
Quizzler is the latest print title in The Week Junior portfolio, following the launch of Science+Nature in September 2018. It will be on sale in selected WHSmiths stores, independent newsagents, selected retail multiples and online.
The magazine goes on sale from 9 July and is priced at £4.95. Quizzler comes with a pull-out puzzle poster, a branded eraser-topped pencil and a chance to win a bicycle.
