The Skinny's Editor-in-Chief: Rosamund West

Season 1, Ep. 5

Rosamund West has been the Editor of The Skinny for more than 10 years. She took over the magazine with a clear goal of establishing its reputation as a leading cultural voice in Scotland, and for the penultimate episode of this series of Magazine Stories she tells us how she went about doing that.

The Skinny is a vital launching pad for talent, with alumni finding their way into many other publications and arts organisations, so she has a great insight into the attributes that mark individuals out as 'ones to watch'. She shares some top advice with us.

She also candidly discusses the challenges The Skinny is facing as the coronavirus crisis hits the events and cultural sectors. Rosamund's passion for magazines, and their ability to "sell you worlds", is compelling.
