We are looking for a new editor
for Bollington Live!
Anthony Holland has done a great job and is embarking on
his 18th issue (6 years). However, he has expressed his desire
to hand over to new blood after the autumn 2012 issue.
The magazine is written and produced entirely by volunteers;
a variable team of around 10 people who create three issues
each year. We meet twice for each issue, about 1 hour each
time, under the chairmanship of Kate Gooding. The editor's
role is crucial to the production of an interesting and broad
spread of articles. The editor works closely with Simon Nottage
at the Bollington Printshop to put each issue together.
So if you would like to be part of this very popular magazine,
with an opportunity to expand your experience and knowledge
of modern publishing, please email
the chairman, Kate Gooding,
now! No prior knowledge of publishing technology is needed,
though use of a PC/Mac and email is necessary.
Editor: Anthony Holland
Chairman: Kate Gooding
Secretary: Sandy Milsom
