So you want my arts job: Art Magazine Editor

Rosy Leake is Editor of an art magazine - well two. ArtsHub catches up with her to discover what it takes to stay in touch and on time.

Rose of Sharon Leake (Rosy) is an experienced editor, writer and content producer living and working on Eora Country/Sydney. Her job is a fast-paced and detail orientated one, as Editor of Art Collector and Art Edit magazines. How does she balance the two and keep the deadlines? ArtsHub catches up with Leake to discover the machinations of being an art magazine editor.

My parents are pretty well-versed on the arts publishing industry, my grandmother publishing her own ceramic arts magazine for years. But I usually tell them that I curate, commission and edit the editorial across Art Collector magazine, as well as interview and write (when I have the time!).
