Sponsored by Mollie Makes

As Editor of Mollie Makes, Cath is passionate about creating unique content that connects with and inspires audiences.

Working in publishing for 10 years across titles including Your Hair, Quick Cards Made Easy and Perfect Wedding, she’s an expert in identifying your market and finding your publishing niche, both in print and digital. She’s passionate about magazine craft and believes that many of the principles applied to creating high-quality print products are just as relevant to bloggers looking to cement their presence online.

When she’s not surrounded by craft and creativity at Mollie Makes or freelance writing for a number of publications, Cath can usually be found hanging out with her two little cats, Posy and Mittens. She loves Sunday mornings spent with mugs of tea and stacks of magazines, espresso martinis, Margaret Atwood novels, yoga and oversized jumpers (preferably grey).

Cath’s workshop will help you identify your niche and position your work to best serve and grow within it. Drawing on the methods publications use when analysing the market, Cath will take you through exercises to bring clarity around your niche and the way forward for your site.
