We present The Bulletin’s first fully online magazine

13:48 09/11/2020

The Bulletin team are proud to present our first fully digital magazine. The 2020-21 edition of The Bulletin takes the themes, analysis and local knowledge that have characterised the print magazine ever since it was launched in 1962 and turns it into a multimedia online platform.

“As it has in so many industries, the Covid-19 crisis has forced us to rethink the way we work,” says editor-in-chief Sarah Crew. “That’s why, instead of printing and distributing The Bulletin magazine as we’d planned to this autumn, we’ve transformed our editorial content into a free digital platform.”

The stories you’ll see in the magazine are all part of our ongoing mission to help our readers understand Belgium. That was the aim of Monique Ackroyd when she launched The Bulletin from her Uccle basement 58 years ago, and it remains our aim today from our new home in the heart of Brussels.

“With the country and the world thrown into turmoil by the pandemic, it’s never been more important to feel like part of a community,” says Crew. “And as Belgium makes unwanted international headlines, it’s never been more important to try and understand how the country works.”

As well as long reads and bite-size pointers on life (and death) in Belgium, we’ll soon be adding interview recordings and audio versions of our articles, giving readers an extra way to experience the magazine. Your feedback is always welcome: send comments and requests to our editorial team here.
