April 2017 was when I last wrote about Inside History Magazine, and sadly that was announcing the last issue. Now we have some good news for readers and subscribers to Inside History Magazine.
The following announcement has just been made by Cassie, the editor of IHM …
Dear Inside History subscribers,
As you know, in May this year I announced that Inside History would cease publishing a print and digital magazine unless a publisher stepped forward to take over the title.
My announcement prompted editor and history lover Eden Cox, from Melbourne publisher Executive Media, to propose a collaboration. We have been in discussions since then about the best way to proceed, and how a partnership could work.
Today, it’s with great excitement that I am announcing that Inside History magazine will live on under a new publisher and a new name – Traces – to be published by Executive Media and launching on 12 December 2017.
Eden will head up Traces, and I will be a consulting editor for the first few issues. It will be a quarterly title and will have a similar scope of content to Inside History – inspiring, practical, inspirational stories about Australian history and heritage, written by leading curators, authors and historians.
I’m also happy to announce that as part of the handover, existing subscriptions will be honoured and you will receive a copy of Traces instead of Inside History for however long your subscription is valid. So for example, if you have three issues of Inside History left on your subscription, you will receive three issues of Traces.
I hope you’ll support and back Traces as much as you’ve supported Inside History. Eden’s love of history and heritage, and her determination to produce a stellar magazine will stand her – and you, the reader – in good stead.
Traces is available now through advanced subscriptions, and for a limited time, you can secure a subscription at half price.
Existing Inside History subscribers will receive their first issue of Traces just in time for Christmas. In the meantime, if you have any questions about your subscription, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org — Cassie, Inside History
So good news folks … Inside History Magazine lives on, but as Traces magazine. We wish Cassie and the Traces team all the very best, and I know everyone is eagerly awaiting the first issue.
