How we create the world's best children's magazine!

Without giving away our secret recipe to educational amazingness, here’s how we make it work...

1. We approach our amazing readers! 

We’re different from the get go.  Instead of opening textbooks, we approach our mixed bunch of amazing young brains (children!) and have a good old natter about the kind of topics they would like to see in Amazing! We hear all manner of strange things about ghosts, wild animals, space and diseases. They only rule is that topics must be fun! 

2. We start connecting the dots...

We get stuck into exploring what might at first seem like the most RANDOM (but still hugely interesting) topic in the universe, and find ways to subtly and wonderfully incorporate curriculum content without it sticking out like a sore thumb. The trick, we find, is to do it with amazing subtlety and undoubtedly with a degree of finesse that is yet unheard of. That’s what makes Amazing! particularly epic!

3. We make more links...

Of course the fun never stops for us, because we go even further and find multiple ways of linking subjects from usually unrelated spheres. Like Maths and History or Geography and Arts and Crafts. In fact, we try and make as many links to different curriculum areas as possible, to encourage children to develop an interest in all aspects of education and have a rounded and connected understanding of our world.

4. We take a step back and evaluate...

We give our content serious evaluation – it needs to meet a huge long check list and fit the bill to appeal to a range of learners, parents and educators. If it doesn’t quite cut the mustard, we keep delving deeper until our end product is at its absolute best.

5. Content Specialists get stuck in...

Our content specialists get cracking. They include teachers and and an endless queue of experts all eager to get their paws on our articles to make them spectacular.

6. The Fantastic Artwork begins...

The articles are given to our design team who develop fantastic artwork and illustrations tailored to Amazing!’s requirements. We like to keep things fun, so we let them stress over this for some time, getting through endless cups of coffee and staying up until the crack of dawn – all to get the images right for our amazing readers.

7. Time for a meeting...

Everyone gets together, kind of like a meeting, but with more excitement and hot chocolate, to have a great grown-up “discussion” about how everything’s coming along. This last for about five minutes, before we get carried away with fantastic ideas we’ve thought up and exciting new ways of doing things! Of course we get back to our evaluation, several hours later...

8. We ask the real experts...

So after going back and forth about a billion times, we go back and forth a further hundred times or so, you know, just to be sure. We check with our nutty big kids (the grown-ups that haven’t quite completely grown up yet), our super students who are probably the toughest audience you’ll ever find, and all sorts of teachers (even the really scary ones).

9. Some final tweaking...

Any content to be modified is edited and filtered through our team of specialists who work tirelessly to make sure every word in Amazing! is amazing!

10. We finally go to print...

After all our last minute changes, frantic trips to buy more coffee, and about a thousand stressful emails, we go to print! Hurray! But then, it dawns on us, we have to do it all over again for the next issue!!!
