A new monthly free newspaper for the East End of London is set to launch this week with a print run of 10,000.
The East End Citizen, which is being launched as a sister title to the Hackney Citizen, will be available for the first time on Friday.
The new title will cover the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, and the first edition will be available on Friday from locations including cafes, shops, businesses and libraries.
It is being produced by Citizen Enterprises, which has published the Hackney title for the last eight years.
Founding editor Keith Magnum decided to launch the title off the back of the success of the Hackney edition, which has a staff of four and switched publication from quarterly to monthly in 2010.
An East End Citizen website is already up and running in support of the print venture.
Said Keith: “The East End Citizen will cover Tower Hamlets news, politics, arts and culture in the same successful format as its sister paper, the Hackney Citizen.”
The new paper will be published during the first week of every month.
