Welcome to our magazine page for Humanistically Speaking

 

If you go right back to the beginning you can see the journey taken in our first year, where unexpectedly a global pandemic landed on us all. But this didn't hold us back. We diversified and rather than being "just" a news outlet for events from our network groups, we have grown way beyond that. We stretched our legs to over thirty pages, and went to a smaller, more readable monthly magazine. Did we get it right? Why not tell us? 

As Humanists we learn, we evolve and we change with the times. As normality returns there may well be additional focus given to events from groups, sharing their thoughts on what works and what doesn't. Stick with us and grow as we grow.
