The Death Of The Magazine - Farrah Storr

Walk-Ins Welcome Episode #239

Farrah Storr, former editor-in-chief of Elle, Cosmopolitan & Women's Health, sits down with Bridget to discuss the never-ending hustle of being a writer. They talk about how she got her start in the magazine industry, what her family thought of the career, the importance of getting in the door and getting experience over continuous higher education, working a lot for little to no money, how she became an editor, the difference between being a writer and an editor, and the mistakes she made along the way. They also cover how part of growing up is the ability to recognize your own mistakes, learning to look inwards and not point the blame at others, why the best editors are commercially minded but they have the soul of a writer, writers who come from money vs. writers who have day jobs, being undeniable, the death of hustle culture, when fashion magazines go all political, how the way to change someone’s mind is with love and humor, and why she doesn't look back.
