In today's lesson I was asked to create a publication plan. For this I had to make all my final decisions using the research I had collected from my questionnaires :

Rationale: This magazine is aimed at 15 to 23 year old pop rock lovers. The magazine in production will offer facts and opinions but will also allow readers to give their opinions. It will contain upcoming events, competitions, interviews and reviews.
Style: The style of my music magazine will be friendly, inviting and informal. It will also be informative, as it will give lists of upcoming gigs and events. The magazine is aimed at fans of pop rock music, therefore must use lexis of the semantic fields of pop rock.
