Merryn Magazine is on hiatus

Unfortunately due to ill health, I have taken the sad decision to stop producing the quarterly digital Merryn Magazine. I am hoping to resume production in the future but for now I will only be blogging on the website.

Independent Music Monday, Charity Tuesday and Writer Wednesday interviews will carry on as usual.

Issue 1 and issue 2 are still available to read!

Happy birthday Merryn Magazine!

anniversaryYay, it’s now been a year since I started running Merryn Magazine! It’s been a crazy year; we’ve brought out two magazines, posted many features and created Merryn Music, Merryn Charity and Merryn Books. We’ve achieved so much in the first year and I can’t wait to see what we produce in the next year.

Thank you so much to everyone who has supported us along the way: here’s to many more years! 🙂 x

An announcement

It is with sadness that I have to bring you this news. Because of a family situation, I am having to put the production of Merryn Magazine on hiatus. I am hoping to resume putting the magazine together at the start of 2017, but unfortunately that means that the October and January issues will not be released.

I will still continue to post blog posts on the website but the actual magazine is ceasing production from this point on.

Thank you for your support and patience during this time.

Kind regards,
Jenny 🙂

We are now on Spotify!

One thing we love here at Merryn Magazine, it’s music. We’ve been a bit of a late adopter to Spotify (apparently it launched in 2008 – oops!), but nevertheless, here we are! You can befriend us here 🙂

We have created a couple of playlists: New music – April 2016 and New music – May 2016 and these playlists contain both signed and unsigned UK artists. As much as we love to champion signed artists, we love music of all kinds, and want to celebrate all music, whether the artists are signed or not. We will be adding new music all time, so why not give us a follow! Also, if you know of any new music we don’t have on our playlists already, let us know so that we can include them! 🙂

Less than 3 weeks until issue 1 is released!

Less than 3 weeks until launch!Wow, where has the time gone? One minute it’s New Year’s Eve, the next it’s 12th March! Crazy. We have been working hard on issue 1, so what can you expect?

Features with all kinds of interesting people, including:
* a popular dating app
* an excellent alternative wedding gift
* pizzas, but not as you know them
* someone who knows all about window displays
* a very dapper way of dressing
* our 24 favourite wish list items

and much, much more!

As well as independent retailers, we are also featuring charities and community projects. We have also covered some big literary anniversaries, and we can’t wait to share with you all news about retailers who are launching for the first time during April, May and June!

As with any magazine, we of course have adverts, but everyone who has an advert is an independent retailer, event or charity, so it’s great to be featuring independent people from cover to cover!

Don’t forget to subscribe here (scroll to the bottom of the page) if you want to receive the magazine on our launch day of Friday 1st April. We can’t wait for you to see it!

Issue 1 – how’s it coming?

On Friday (in 2 days), it will be 8 weeks until the first issue of Merryn Magazine comes out. Eek! Since the idea of the magazine was ‘born’ if you will, it’s been a crazy ride and we are so excited to show you the fruits of our labour! The original plan was to have 100 pages of content, but as there are so many fabulous people we want to feature, it’s going to be way longer than that, which is great news!
