Raw Print Live is a monthly event collaborating with Ideas On Paper, where we look at the exciting and dynamic nature of magazine making. With different speakers for each event, we aim to open your eyes into the endless possibilities of the publishing and magazine-making world - whether you're a maker, buyer, or simply love the printed page.

Come along for a beer or two and leave with new-found mindfulness and inspiration for the modern magazine.

Ideas On Paper is a independent magazine retailer in Nottingham established in March 2014 by Alex Smith. Based in the Cobden Chambers at the heart of the Creative Quarter, Ideas On Paper brings together a thought-provoking selection of magazines, journals, and books into one place. Alex curates independent titles on fashion, art, culture, design, business, economics, food, wine and travel. 


I think that the genie’s out of the bottle now. People, not just in independent magazines, people in all media know that they can create their own content and get it out into the world.
