New hyperlocal magazine launched for churches

Reading Post features editor Phil Creighton has left the paper to launch and publish his own hyperlocal magazine for churches.

His new title, Xn, is an A4ish sized newsprint magazine for churches in Reading, Wokingham and Bracknell which can also be read in a digital format here.

The free title is distributed via the churches and features a mixture of news and features.

Phil says: "It's hyperlocal journalism in action: reaching a niche audience and supplying them with relevant and engaging copy, attractively presented.

"At the moment, I'm working on my own - stories are coming from the usual sources of contacts, meeting people and getting out and about. Assuming the revenue comes in as forecast, I'll be looking to employ a trainee and working with them to get their NTCJ qualifications."
