Working at Next Issue can be a pretty sweet gig. We get to spend every week browsing the latest issues in the app, and sharing our favorite stories with you. But beyond a wealth of amazing stories, we know our readers bring just as much variety to the table.
That’s right, we want to hear from YOU. Which stories made you laugh, brought a tear to your eye, ignited your sense of adventure, or seemed to jump right off the page?
As a Next Issue Guest Curator, you’ll help us showcase the stories that keep the thrill of reading alive. Your picks will be sent out to all of your fellow readers in our popular #WeekendReads newsletter, and will also be featured on our blog. And no, we’re not just pawning off our curating duties on you. (Okay, maybe a little bit).
So, want to let us know what you’re reading? Shoot us an email to become a Guest Curator.
Check out what previous Guest Curators have to say below, and click on the links to view their awesome picks.
1. Jeannie Mai – Style Expert & Co-Host of Daytime Talk Show, “The Real”
“Life before the Next Issue App? Basically me lugging around 7-8 heavy magazines trying to keep myself up on the latest. (Keep in mind callouses from heavy Longchamp bags have never been fashionable.) I’m so thrilled to have Next Issue and to keep my fave issues on download 24-7.”
2. Ian Livingston – Travel Editor at JohnnyJet.com
Ian is a man constantly on the move. While he’s en route from destination to destination, Next Issue’s “sheer quantity of premium content in one space” is what keeps him connected to all the latest news.
3. Anna Caltabiano – Teen Author, “All That Is Red”
“To be a happy person, I believe you have to be a balanced person. I like the flexibility Next Issue gives me to branch out and provide for all sides of myself.”
4. Bob Moll – Director of Publisher Integration at Next Issue
Sometimes, we just have to let other teams at Next Issue take part in the curating fun. As one of Next Issue’s resident yogis, a lover of design, and possibly the most inquisitive human being we’ve ever met, Bob’s picks added lots of flavor to #WeekendReads.
5. Dina Fierro – Social Media Pro & Fashion / Beauty Blogger at Eye4Style
“I truly live my life at the intersection of style and technology. Frequent work travel and a fierce determination to never, ever check a bag makes Next Issue my travel necessity.”
6. Sandi McKenna – Co-Host of Reality Series, “The Midlife Roadtrip”
“Travel comes with long layovers, lengthy flights, and restless jet-lagged nights. So having my favorite magazines on my tablet is not just convenient, it’s a life saver. My favorite passing-time stories are about previously unknown destinations that promptly get added to my ever-growing bucket list.”
7. Jennifer Burke – Customer Relations & Marketing Manager at Ontario Lottery and Gaming Slots
It’s always a pleasure to connect with someone who loves reading as much as we do. Jennifer was just that person. After getting a shiny new iPad for Christmas, her family simply couldn’t pull her away from all Next Issue had to offer.
8. Michael Tusk – Professional Chef & Restaurant Owner
As the owner of two award-winning restaurants in San Francisco, Chef Tusk is always perusing his favorite food magazines for inspiration. His picks include food, food, wine, and more food. Are you surprised?
9. Alice LaPlante – Author, “A Circle of Wives”
“Magazines offer such a smorgasbord of interesting material. With an iPad loaded up with Next Issue, I’ll never be bored waiting for a meeting or appointment again.”
10. Linda Khumalo Jones – Power Reader & Travel Enthusiast
“My husband and I live in the U.S. in a house chock-full of books, but we regularly visit my hometown of Johannesburg, South Africa. Thanks to Next Issue, lugging a stack of magazines for the 17-hour flight is a distant memory.”
