Redwood set to launch magazine called Wish

Contract publisher Redwood is launching a magazine called Wish, and has appointed Deborah Bee, the launch editor of IPC Media’s failed title Nova, as editor.

Wish is being launched in the late autumn and will carry features on entertainment and the arts, travel, and health. According to insiders, it will aim to cover a “positive and wish-fulfiling perspective on life”.

Redwood refuses to comment on any details of the launch and declines to say which advertiser is funding the title.

Some members of the Nova team will work with Bee on the magazine – including Jane Fitz-Gerald as commissioning editor and Emily Anderson as features editor.

Nova, after being absent from the newsstands for 25 years, was revived in May last year under the editorship of Bee and was positioned as a fashion-based lifestyle magazine. Bee lasted for only six issues and IPC later hired the editor of The Sunday Times Style magazine, Jeremy Langmead, in November, but Nova was closed in May.

The contract publisher has also won a new contract from Thomas Cook to produce a 28-page magazine titled Cruise. It will be circulated three times a year to 50,000 targeted potential cruisers.
