Last January a small group of E&M editors, authors, and readers gathered in the icy cold city of Hamburg. It was there, in the midst of the snow and the many debates on Europe, that we launched the magazine's first steps into live issue journalism. One year and 160 blog posts later, we think it's time to revolutionise E&M again and open up writing in the magazine to you, our readers!

We're delighted to announce that new editor Rike Maier has joined Sixth Sense for 2012 and will be leading a number of new blogs that explore films, life inside Brussels, and a series of 'Good Reads' - recommendations from our editors. All this weekend we'll be launching different elements of the new Sixth Sense, so keep an eye out for your chance to get involved!

The new elements of Sixth Sense 2.0:

  • Reader submissions - Looking to improve your writing skills? Write a one-off blog on any topic and get advice from our editors - just match your piece to a section of our magazine.

  • Café Cinema - Film noir with a touch of coffee house debate; reviews of blockbusters and niche films, with discussions of their relevance today.

  • Brussels Bubble - What's really going in the belly of the beast?

  • THIS IS EUROPE - or is it?

  • The Transnationalist - Matt brings E&M's unique transnational perspective to bear on the biggest issues of the day.

  • Good Reads - E&M editors from across the magazine recommend the best articles of the week and give you their thoughts on Europe. 


2012 is going to be an exciting year for E&M, and most of all we're excited to see how your writing can make Europe personal.

If the Editorial team had an actual office it would have to stretch from the corner of Britain to the edges of Spain, Sweden, Germany and beyond. (With frequent trips to America too) .  The term 'from the editorial office' then, is very much a figure of speech.
