Closer 3

3coverCloser 3 comes back from the printers tomorrow. This is the third of four special edition print off-shoots that Bella dabbles in in our down-time.

Issue one was about innovation and democracy. Issue two was all about participation. Issue three is written by and for women, including: Marsha Scott, Lesley Orr and Nel Whiting; Jacqueline Gallagher, and Hazel Frew on journeys to yes. Lauren Currie (listed as one of the top 50 radicals by Nesta) on innovation, Abi Cornwall on transformative childcare and social policy, Vonny Moyes on the Patronising BT Lady phenomenon, Lesley Riddoch on why it’s up to us, Laura Eaton Lewis on gender and leadership, Cat Boyd and Jennifer Morrison on feminism and independence, Tessa Ransford on poetry and empowerment, Alison Johnstone on a Green Yes, Elaine Mulcahy on an Irish Yes and Sara Sheridan on the DNA of indy.

Plus, as they say, lots more.

This is about a new media for a new democracy.

Join us for the launch at Hemma Cafe this Monday 15 September at 11.30 am (kids welcome).

At only £3 each it will be available at Word Power Books, at all the Yes Shops, at Glasgow Women’s Library and via Women for Independence.

You can also ‘be the network’ and order your own – or even better – three for £11.00.
