Over the past few weeks we've been recruiting lots of lovely creatives to help make the first issue of Creative Countryside a reality. I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has been in touch - I'm thrilled to have so many like-minded others on board, and I can't wait to receive the articles and images that have so far been commissioned.
If you'd like to be involved, there's still time: the deadline for getting in touch is 1st December, and we're happy to hear from writers, illustrators and photographers interested in slow, seasonal living.
But back to it. Here's a first look at the front cover of the first issue - gather - due to be released in Autumn 2017.
I'd love to hear what you think of it.
In addition, if you're interested in keeping up-to-date with the magazine, and would like to be the first to hear when it's published, then sign up below.
