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.
I’m Vice-chair of Stockport Humanists and was Secretary of Greater Manchester Humanists 2007-2015. I hope to provide some input to Humanistically Speaking from outside its region of origin, and contribute to its ongoing development as a lively and topical Humanist magazine of interest to both local groups and those who are not members of a group.
I was born in Zimbabwe, have lived most of my adult life in Tanzania, and currently live in South Africa.
I'm a founding member of "United African Humanists" - a group comprised of Humanist leaders from 9 African countries, who are working together to solve Africa wide issues, with a vision one day, of a secular continent. I'm also on the Advisory Board Africa for "Humanists Global Charity", my main country is Uganda.
Outside of my Humanist work I'm a freelance writer, mother of two wonderful teenage children, and we all share a home filled with rescued cats and dogs!
I'm a retired zoologist who specialised in bird behaviour, and took a post-retirement law degree. Now, I try to write thrillers with an animal welfare theme. I live in hope these will become best-sellers and turned into films.I love planting trees - you can never have enough.I feel passionately that conservation of biodiversity is the only way to save the planet.
