IntroductionMy task is to create the front page, contents and a double page spread of a new music magazine.

• To find out what I want my music magazine to look like, I will be using the internet to find out what music magazines are currently available in the UK.

• I will be choosing a few magazines to do my initial research on.

• For each magazine, I will be finding out what their circulation and readership are, and what their mission statement is.

Circulation = The number of copies the magazine usually distributes for each issue.

Readership = How many people read each issue of the magazine.
