Gearing up for BYM - preview
The Friend is packing its bags and heading for York this weekend
  • We are swapping our compact office on top of Friends House, Euston, for a corner of the Cyber Café at Britain Yearly Meeting in order to report on the major event in the Quaker calendar
  • The magazine will be published from York next week and our editorial team will be out and about, attending sessions, mingling with everyone and generally behaving as newshounds should (you can identify us by our distinctive Friend t-shirts)
  • However, we will gratefully accept help from our readers
  • If you are taking a camera to BYM we would like to see your pictures
  • We need good definition shots – mobile phone pictures are not usually defined enough for publication, but Clare-Marie White, Simon Risley and Trish Carn will advise
  • And we will need your stories! You will also get your first chance to meet our (fairly) new subscriptions officer, Chris Fitch, and put a face to the voice you talk to when your copy goes astray, as well of course as George Penaluna, who will also be manning our table

  • This is a preview of the full article - to see the whole thing, or to post a comment you need to login, or alternatively you could try a free sample!
