Weaving for the 2017 diary

I know it seems difficult to believe but we are already busy choosing artwork and writing for inclusion in the 2017 Earth Pathways Diary. We need to work this far in advance because there’s an awful lot of editing, designing, proof-reading, re-designing, contributor liaison, printer liaison and more re-designing. Then, let’s not forget cake-eating, checking…

The world leaders on climate change … and making a wish

Processing our submissions (part two)

Then after a month or so of individual time spent considering the submissions we meet as a group and go through them again to talk about our choices and decisions. (This is also an excuse important reason for much chocolate, coffee and general reverie!!!) This can lead to heated (but friendly) discussions because we all…

2016 submissions accident

The only prerequisite you need to work for the Earth Pathways Diary is a good sense of humour. Oh, and the ability not to mind much if you get crushed beneath a large pile of submissions envelopes. Thank you so much to all the wonderful folk who have sent us submissions for the 2016 Earth…

Sampling our samples!

Part of ‘Project: New Website’ includes uploading sample pages from all of our previous diaries. We started way back in 2009 with little more than an idea, a strong belief in our ability to create this diary and some generous folk who gifted us their time, money, artwork and writing.
