After the success of the Girl Talk Art one-shot, which was embraced by young creative minds when it went on sale in February 2012, Immediate Media Co has further strengthened its portfolio by launching Girl Talk Art as a monthly title, on sale now. Priced at £2.99, the interactive magazine is aimed at the 1.1m 7-12 year old girls in the UK who love drawing, painting, craft and learning new skills.*

Each issue will offer high-value covermounts and stickers. Issue1comes with a free ‘Fashion studio set’ containing a mannequin and fabrics, gems and sequins.

There has been such an enthusiastic response from our readers who love being creative and use Girl Talk Art to expand their interest. We aim to create a lively magazine which I’m really looking forward to developing further to help make art fun and accessible for young girls.”
Martin Stahel, Associate Publisher commented “Arts and crafts is a massive hobby for girls aged 7-12 with 58% of them expressing their creativity through drawing, collaging, fashion design and many other mediums every week.* Girl Talk Art is set to expand the girls’ magazine category with something unique for new and existing magazine buyers.”
