The seeds of Scoop were sown when founder and publisher Clementine Macmillan-Scott discoveredthe Children’s Newspaper while researching a book for her mother, Juliet Nicolson. Inspired by its thought-provoking content and popularity (it sold 500,000 copies a week in its heyday), and by her own literary background, Clementine began to explore the possibility of creating a child-focused print platform for the twenty-first century – a collectible, gorgeously designed magazine that celebrates the creative spirit in this Golden Age of children’s literature and illustration. After months of planning and fundraising, Clementine assembled a small team of respected publishing and design professionals and formed Curious Publishing Ltd as a platform through which to publish Scoop.

Scoop will be primarily sold through subscription, but also available in selected independent bookshops from October. The digital strategy is also being developed to create an online platform.

Subscriptions can be purchased from www.scoopthemag.co.uk from September.
Scoop costs £39.99 for an annual family subscription for ten issues, and £160 for an annual school subscription (five copies of ten issues)
