Mapping the Magazine 3 saw a wide ranging series of papers delivered by magazine educators, academics and practitioners, who assembled in Cardiff in July 2011.

Speakers from as far afield as Edith Cowan University and University of Sydney - Australia,  The University of Mississippi – USA, University of Perugia – Italy, McGill University - Canada  presented papers while UK papers were delivered by the University of Central Lancashire, Bath Spa University and the University of Birmingham.

Conference organiser Tim Holmes (Magazine Director at Cardiff) commented:

“I would just like to say a massive thank you to everyone who contributed to Mapping the Magazine 3.

“I was also very impressed by the tremendous collegiality and generosity of spirit showed by all to all.

“There are a number of initiatives that have been suggested, including a new journal dedicated to the field and an international organisation of practically-oriented magazine courses.

"I am very happy for Mapping the Magazine to be a facilitating agent or platform in anything like this; I also hope that there will be some interpersonal collaborations that arise as a result."

Mapping the Magazine 4, is currently planned to take place in July 2013.
