This information being individually forwarded to all members of the Transition Network to raise awareness of a new black and white magazine Transition Vision which I have helped found.
The magazine looks at autobiographical evidence from all strata of global society and then provides editorial comment from a loosely environmental perspective. Sociological, feminist and other perspectives are also included. The general view is sympathetic to permaculture and the establishment of permaculture worldwide. The feel is currently quite academic, but this is slowly changing to something more accessable, in response to continued feedback from contributors and readers.
The magazine, I feel, is highly relevant to Transition Initiatives.
We are currently seeking more buyers for issue number 2, in order to fund issue number 3 (for which material already collated for April). The magazine has a circulation of under 300 copies at present, but is attracting increasing interest. We hope to break the 500 barrier for issue 4 out in August.
We also seek more autobiographical evidence, mainly in the form of diaries, and would be particularly interested to hear from diary-writing transitioners. We do not expect that all diarists are brilliant writers, as to us it is the essence of the experience which is the most important.
Issue number 2 is 40 pages long including illustrations and features an Artist's Statement from Andy White and a rather stunning photocopy of one of his paintings. It also features an interview with a female horse drawn traveller and the the diary of a part time doctor working on issues of sustainability in her home and community.
We would be immensely grateful if you could help us break even with the magazine (we haven't managed to break even yet) by purchasing a copy, at £4 plus £1 postage and packaging.
We would also be immensely grateful for diarists, of all ages aged 5-105, from any walk of life (they don't have to be sympathetic towards the environment as it is up to the editors to discern underlying themes. However transitioner diarists most welcome.) Please note that the autobiographical evidence is not judged, but is used to pick up on wider trends in society and humanity in general, relating to themes of permaculture in a very broad sense of permanent culture.
