How would you describe what you do?
I would say ‘editor’ encapsulates my day job and part of what I do for SEASON – writing, commissioning, editing and signing off copy. But on SEASON I also manage the team, do all the admin, as well as physically pack and send out orders. SEASON zine spans biannual print issues and stickers, a podcast, social media, events and more which the team work on collaboratively with external creatives.
Can you tell us a little about SEASON zine?
I launched SEASON zine in London in 2016 to counter the male, pale and sometimes stale state of modern football culture and to explore the evolving interplay between fashion, football and personal style. It’s a cross between a football fanzine and a fashion magazine.
We’re a community and a creative platform. We tell football and fashion stories (always one, sometimes both) that showcase, celebrate and empower female fans whether they play or not. All the while unpacking important issues, dispelling stereotypes, emphasising inclusivity and collaborating with exciting creative talent.
As I work full-time, SEASON zine happens outside of those hours on evenings and weekends predominately. My time management always evolves depending on what the immediate priorities are. I’ve become a lot better at setting boundaries and carving out time for myself. People don’t always realise that our team works to a different schedule than everyone else.
