Students who study journalism at the Institute of Mass Communications and Social Sciences acted as senior editors of Kazan magazine.
This year illustrated historic-literary magazine about Kazan and its citizens turns 20 years. Its senior editor Yuri Balashov met with the students on the eve of the anniversary.
Such events take place annually as a part of Stylistics and Editorship course. The editor admits that in an era of new technologies it is important to learn the opinion of young generation on further development of the paper magazine, its Internet-version and their promotion in social networks. The students were offered to act as senior editors and analyze some issues of the magazine.
As one of the vital issues for the magazine is lack of financing the students made proposals how to find additional investments. They also contributed their ideas on promotion and design of the magazine’s web-page including animated graphics, audio and video content.
