Hand Media International announce new Maverick Editor

Hand Media International is pleased to announce the appointment of Zoe Hodges as Editor for Maverick Magazine. Zoe is the ideal candidate to take up the mantle of this privileged position. With over six year of journalistic experience both in the UK and in Nashville she is our preferred candidate for the role.

Zoe has a passion for country music, having set up ‘Best of British Country Music’ (later known as ‘The Writers Room’), aimed at providing young, aspiring artists an opportunity to shine. Having covered interviews with some of the biggest names in country music, writing about festivals across the country and even releasing her own EP of original music, Zoe will bring all this experience to Maverick Magazine.

With exciting new plans for the future, Maverick is seizing the opportunity for change in order to be able to produce the best editorial, design and digital content possible for our readers. The appointment of Zoe highlights our commitment to being the international market leader, and our further commitment to our fantastic subscription supporters.

Speaking of the appointment, Zoe said: “I remember the first time I went to Country 2 Country when I was still a teenager and Maverick had their own stall in the Town Square. I remember thinking ‘Wow, what a cool job that would be, I’d like to work for them one day’ now here I am – literally living the dream!”

Jon Pittock, Publisher, Hand Media International, stated: “The team here at Maverick are really excited to welcome Zoe on board. Her experience and passion for the industry will bring a perfect synergy to the publication. She is the ideal individual to pioneer the editorial for the new era of Maverick.”

Zoe has officially joined the Maverick team, and can be contacted via email at editor@maverick-country.com
