Our editorial team comprises humanist volunteers from various stages of life and different backgrounds,
from teenagers to grandparents, students to working people and retirees.
They all give willingly of their time and talents because they are enthusiastic humanists, keen to raise
awareness and understanding of humanism and to promote interest in the humanist approach to life.
I wanted a regional “general-interest-to-humanists" magazine that might be big enough to have a decent readership, but still able to report on local humanists, and local initiatives. Thanks to the enthusiasm of our new team, Humanistically Speaking was effectively born on the 1st January 2020.
I’m Chair of Dorset Humanists, Council Member for SCEHN, and an Honorary Member of Humanists UK. Humanistically Speaking is a lively new grassroots magazine which aims to fill the gap between individual group newsletters and national publications. Connecting humanist groups and raising awareness.
Design and Layout Editor
I aim to bring our storybook of words alive and make it visually appealing with graphics, images and some stylish design tinkering. I’m based in Dorset and have interests in fitness, outdoors, military, and psychology. I have thus far written a number of articles and have an overall aim of growing Humanism.
Youth Articles Editor
I am currently studying English Literature, Psychology, Drama and Arts Award Gold at Godalming College. After completing college, my aim is to take a degree in acting at drama school with a view to becoming a professional actor. As well as acting, I also love writing – articles, poems, plays, although I’ve never quite managed writing a book!
Young Humanists Editor
I study German language and literature, finding motivation in everyday life through reading. I am a Young Humanist Ambassador and hope to get students at Oxford University more involved in creating a secular and tolerant society. I am lucky enough to have a voice and a platform (however small) and the power of language should never be underestimated.
