Always good to see bright, young people making magazines. A week Friday (March 30), creative communications students from Red River College  in Winnipeg are holding a magazine trade fair to show the community the magazine prototypes they have created. According to a post on the site, there is one called Black Tutu, a magazine for young women, another called duckface (a women's tech magazine), Hot Mic, about the Winnipeg hip-hop scene and a fan magazine devoted to the Winnipeg Jets. The event is at the Roblin Centre on Princess Street and runs from noon to 4 p.m.
“The fair itself is always a lot of fun,” said Emily Doer, a member of the four-person group behind the young women’s publication Black Tutu Magazine. “Groups work together to make their magazine concept come to life. There are always a lot of prizes, and a chance to meet the creative team...We have some really innovative and trendy magazine concepts.”
