Cube in print is a professionally designed and produced magazine made by young people through work placements.  It is thought to be the only magazine of this kind in the UK.  The magazine has a target audience of 13-19 with a circulation of between 3,500 and 7,000 copies per issue. Cube can be found in libraries, secondary schools, youth organisations and places where young people hang out in South Yorkshire.

The Cube project was formed in 2003 in response to the lack of writing and media opportunities for young people, particularly in relation to exploring media careers. Its first young editorial team formed the Cube manifesto which is still central to the Cube ethos today. Since its humble beginnings Cube has grow into a vast project with outlets through print, web, radio, TV, exhibition and film. Cube now has two types of placement. It's original journalism focused placements train young people in journalistic production including interviewing, researching, feature writing, web design, radio production and photojournalism.  

In 2007 Cube was awarded Mediabox funding to pilot another type of placement, ‘Cube Xtra’, which focuses on high-end graphic design and short documentary and experimental film making, further enhancing the experiences and opportunities offered through Cube. The unique design of the magazine is supported by John Batu Dedeoglu at Leopard rock Media who also leads Cube’s graphic design training.

To date around 700 young people have contributed to Cube and its related projects, bringing together an exciting mix of interests, talents and creativity that has made Cube the unique magazine it is. See the Cube highlights page for some of our achievements and success and theCube bytes page for what our young journalists have said about Cube.

Cube seek to find real journalistic and media experiences for young people. If you have any suggestions, ideas or opportunities for young people relating to journalistic writing, reviewing, interviewing, short film making, reporting and photojournalism, let Vicky Morris know!
