About The Journal

The Journal is produced by a team of volunteers (the Journal Editorial Committee) who are guild members serving for up to 5 years, having been elected at the Association AGM and normally recruited by advertisement in the monthly Association Newsletter. The committee roles include editors who commission, write and edit copy, which is set out in each issue by a professional designer and those who undertake the management of The Journal’s finance, advertising and subscriptions.
