Together: Announcing a new magazine for the Christian book and retail trade

WHOLEHEARTED CONGRATULATIONS to Steve & Mandy Briars (Publishers) along with Clem Jackson (Editor) and Eddie Olliffe (Consulting Editor) on working together to bring a new magazine to the Christian book and retail trade: Together.

The new magazine aims to fill the gap left by the discontinued trade edition of Christian Marketplace earlier this year, with a 24 page pilot issue due out in February 2013 to be followed by the full 48 page magazine in April. Features planned include author interviews, bookshop profiles and much more.

Plans for the new magazine have been greeted with enthusiasm by retailers and suppliers alike:

  • Tony Bronnimann, Quench:

We are delighted that CRT has taken the decision to publish a new trade magazine. We can feel confident it will not only be a valuable resource but have retail at its heart.

  •  Brian Wilson, IVP:

This is extremely positive news for our trade. The strong and experienced team behind Together gives us a well-founded confidence that this new initiative will fulfil the developing requirements of retailers and suppliers in these changing times.

  • Karen Laister, BRF:

Together is a welcome new resource to inform and equip Christian retailers and suppliers. In what continues to be a difficult trading time, we need a journal that will help us grapple with big issues and rapidly changing market trends. Well done to Steve, Mandy, Clem and Eddie for having the vision for Together and the passion to help our ministries reach their full potential.
