North Staffordshire’s Barefoot Doctors arts and skills project have announced that they are planning a new monthly magazine…

“At the moment we see it as a special collectible, limited edition, publication for arts reviews, comment, poetry, journalistic articles, illustration, photography etc… a beautiful thing to hold with real artistic value in itself. We will discuss this idea in more depth at the next Friday Surgery on September 25th 2009. Please interact here on the blog in the meantime, comment with your thoughts and ideas. … a monthly model looks the most sustainable and in terms of timescale, it’s probable we’d have a trial run produced by sometime in October.”

More details at their blog post.
