The Modern Magazine conference takes place this Wednesday at Central St Martins College of Art in London. There’s a great line-up of speakers (read on) and tickets are still available…

MagCulture founder and CR contributor Jeremy Leslie has brought together a strong selection of editorial, graphic and digital designers, editors and publishers for what is billed as “a close-up look at today’s golden age of magazines”.

And the format promises to touch on most aspects of creating a magazine in 2013: from presentations from several leading designers; two panel discussions on women’s magazines and indie titles; and a focus on six independent publishing ventures.

From magCulture, here’s the format for the day:
