We can help you improve your magazine. Whether you’re looking for feedback on your current publication or you’re hoping to build one from scratch, Dog Ear Consultants will tailor our services to suit your needs. We offer coaching on writing and design, critiques, staff workshops, and redesign consultations. Here’s a look at just a few of our services.

The Critique

Dog Ear will critique one or more back issues of your magazine to assess writing, design, and content. We’ll offer a written critique as well as a three-tiered action plan to suit your budget.

The Workshop

Dog Ear will sit down with your magazine or communication staff to talk shop. A day-long workshop might include a critique of your current publication, presentations from our staff, coaching in writing or design, and a Q and A session with a consultant.

The Overhaul

Sure, redesigns can be daunting, but they can also be a heck of a lot of fun. We’ll work with you to rethink your magazine’s content and execute your redesign from the nameplate to template.

The Backup

You’re suddenly understaffed and deadlines are looming. Dog Ear will provide  project management services—from story assignments and design to fact-checking and the mailing process—to help get you through a special project or an interim issue of your magazine.
