S02E01 Group magic, Magazines & Magical Harvests
The Australian Pagan Magazine is 1 year into production and, after a few small hiccups, we are venturing in new directions and now with just 1 designer the flow of the Magazine will hopefully improve. For the first edition of 2014 we are having a pagan music special to welcome our new music writer to the magazine. We have such great articles already submitted, with both new & old themes and there is also now a lot more information on our wonderful natives being used instead of introduced herbs, (Thank you to Kristy & Kerry from Australian Magick for helping.). We now have a new team setup working together,(although some staff have been here since the start), to make the magazine even better. Due to the added interest & contributions from the many wonderful writers, we may also need to look at ways to expand the pages. We also have a wonderful new website; www.theaustralianpaganmagazine.com to bring the magazine to the next level. We are still working on this site to make it better for all to enjoy, but it won't be long until it is done. A big thank you to Kirst for all her wonderful help and expertise in setting this up. Please feel free to contact us if you like, and are interested in, the web design, I will pass on your details to her. A big thank you to Hermit & Cin for jumping in and helping even more too, it's much appreciated. The magazine is written from the heart of it's contributors, sharing a piece of themselves & making it wonderful for us all. We are different from text book style books and magazines out there, as we are writing from our hearts & our own knowledge, after all this is how the old, lost knowledge was passed on. We do this to help people find what they may be looking for and help with awareness & acceptance, while also enjoying the ride, we hope you enjoy it as well. New submissions are always welcome, please send them to; firstname.lastname@example.org Some of us are also working on other projects, like a pagan based calendar so we can bring you more interesting ideas in the near future. Blessings Judith & the Australian Pagan team
