Eulogy magazine

Monday, 19 July 2010

Have you read Eulogy magazine? A number of you have asked me, and you have probably been expecting me to cough up a pov. But at more than £3 a throw it is way beyond my stayin’alive budget.

Yet we ought to know about it, need to know about it. Would you like to review it for readers of this blog? Please, please do!

Write something and send it to me: charles@goodfuneralguide.co.uk

    They also need to decide how often they are going to produce an issue, and stick to it, eg every 3 or 4 months or whatever. It was going to be monthly, according to what was advertised in the first issue, dated July, but there has been a 4-month gap.

    They need to get their act together if they want to stay afloat. It’s no good disappearing from the shelves after only one issue, unless they are going to start charging to read the online issue.

    Incidentally, have you noticed that in some shops you almost have to stand on your head to see what’s at the back of the bottom shelf? The back of the top shelf isn’t too easy to see either.

    It’s alive and well on its website, Linda. And I am about to bill them for an article I wrote. I’ll see if I can find out what’s going on.

    Further to my comment about the long-overdue second issue of Eulogy, this has actually been produced, according to their website, and is dated November 2010, but I haven’t seen it on sale anywhere, including two branches of W H Smith. I will ask about it soon.

    It would be a pity if this magazine, which seems to fill a gap in the market, were to close because of lack of availability.

    The second issue is long overdue. I asked in WHS yesterday, 12 October, and they didn’t have it. I hope this magazine has not folded after just one issue. That would be a shame.

    Interesting point Louise, we need to spot ther green shoots wherever we see them, even on a magazine stand at the station! Thanks for the post Charles, over on “Mindfulness and Mortality” I’m following up a lovely insight in “Eulogy” from Sir Clement Freud, as reported by his daughter Emma.

    not seen it or read it – but Love the concept.

    I’m sure i was chatting with someone last year about this sort of idea for a magazine i’m racking my brain to remember who is was but my baby brain is not opening the gateway to the source of information right now….
    I suppose the idea is that people would rather pick up a magazine about real people rather than the other trash that you get on the shelves – when I was in hospital i couldn’t even bear to open up any of those glossy trashy mags – I’d love to have had a read of this..

    Have you seen Bereavement today magazine – that’s a freebie mag that’s full of advise and info totally different concept really but interesting that in the past 2 years we have a couple of mags out there related to death / celebrating life – maybe times really are changing and people are starting to raise their head out of the sand at the mention of death – we’ll just have to see if people will actually pick up a mag like this – good luck to them
