Addicted to journalism

By Donna Duggan

Attending events throughout the day can lead to late nights working on the magazine and website. Managing Editor Donna Duggan explains why it pays to be addicted to journalism.

The MiNDFOOD editorial team are invited to many events. And as the end of year draws near, the frequency of events increases exponentially. 

This week began with a media day with Princess Mary hosted by the Danish Embassy (see our Smart Thinking Culture section next issue), and will also include an advance screening of Carnage (for our film review section), the opening of a bar in Sydney (for our Smart Thinking Food and Drink section), and a lunch hosted by Relais & Chateaux (for Smart Thinking Travel). 

On top of that there are many interviews and meetings so our actual day job i.e. putting the magazine and website together, is often done in the late hours of the evening and in the early hours of the morning. 

It can be exhausting but always interesting as you get to learn about what’s going on from the source, rather than a second hand account. It’s what makes journalism so addictive
