This year, Viva Voce has been spotted dancing with a giant ear and a giant pair of lips on sticks, getting people to decorate cupcakes with a blindfold on and wandering around in Viva Voce hoodies – all part of a master marketing plan. Because we don’t just need writers for our unique audio magazine – we need people to record, to read aloud, to edit, and to help publicise us!
Freshers’ Fair was record breaking for us in sign-ups, but anybody who wants to get involved with us is very welcome as we always need more writers and readers – in fact they can find us on Facebook, add us on Twitter, or email the committee at [email protected].
So far this year, we have also had a lovely natter with York Blind and Partially Sighted Society about how we can work with them to advertise our magazine. They have an amazing centre where they help blind and partially sighted individuals to find equipment and resources to help them in their day to day lives, as well as offering a chat with people who understand. As an audio-magazine, we need to have connections with Blind and Partially Sighted Societies everywhere so we have decided to start local and work upwards.
