Inside Out - a new literary arts magazine promoting the creative therapies
Part literary publication, part therapeutic expression, Inside Out is a new breed of literary arts magazine.
Our mission is to promote the use of creativity for personal development through the publication of work with a focus on self-awareness and self-help.
Accumulated from an online army of artists, designers, poets and writers, the first issue of the magazine Inside Out is released for sale from its website and selected bookshops and newsagents across the country.
New magazines may be launched everyday, but few are the result of collaboration between so many UK-based talents. This privately-funded magazine is a product of online networks and human resource. The aim of Inside Out has picked up momentum by uniting many like-minded individuals behind the cause of promoting a truly creative publication.
The first half of the magazine contains interviews with famous names like the author Blake Morrison and the London artist La La, as well as introducing Victoria Field, the UK’s first poetry therapist, and Gillie Bolton, a therapeutic writing consultant. The features are designed to explore the potential of creativity – either as a tool for self-development and increased emotional well-being, a path to better career prospects, or much more.
But Inside Out is not carried by editorial articles. The second half calls for readers’ submissions. With creativity for self-development as its theme, pieces in the first issue reveal and honestly explore personal experiences. The magazine is composed of new and individual human voices. It provides a new outlet for expression and a new addition to the resources of those seeking to explore the cathartic arts in this country.
And as each page was written, from the front to the back, it was given to a commissioned artist for their visual interpretation, so that a blank space is hard to find. The magazine’s editor, Rebecca Atherton, describes it in her own words: “Inside Out has the appearance of a beautiful, private journal,” but what is contained within are secrets that reveal how creativity has the power to change your own life.
