Touchdown is filled with a rich array of texts which appeal to readers aged around 12 years and older. Each magazine is packed with beautiful illustrations and photos, and the texts are sourced by a lively group of "stringers" (roving correspondents): Beyonce Horizons, who travels the world collecting stories and poems; Velma Velez, who provides nonfiction pieces from all corners of the globe, and Pencils D. Barrymore, the somewhat unreliable chap who sends in plays and the occasional puzzle, usually inspired by his global mishaps. All of this material is corralled into shape by The Ed, a person who delights in alliteration and providing the best quality literature available.
