The Folklife ident

by Chris Stewart

Originally, the magazines were published (& subsidised) by the Somers Traditional Folk Club, Worcester (which meets every Friday, for 33 years!) but Folklife is now a separate organisation published (& subsidised) by the Editors. To email STFC: please see STFC website for STFC email

WHAT WE DO ONLINE .............................  LIMITATIONS OF THIS WEBSITE ...

What we do is produce and distribute a PRINTED folk magazine;

anything online is a bonus.

 

Online is intended for desktop computers and larger screens

 

We are a non-profit group of volunteers/amateurs who produce a print magazine.

I paste copies of most print pages online, so that you can read some.

  • Note the "I" here, not "we" - FQ print magazine is a team effort; but website is just me (Sam) to copy it online, so limited time

Do dip in to an online page, - or 2 - 3 .... whilst most of our 48 A4 pages are online, to read it all, a printed copy is far easier!

  • website is later than print. Once the print magazine has been distributed, I start copying it online, then I copy Folk What's On, and then update the Directory - this takes up to a fortnight after 1 Jan/Apr/Jul/Oct.

 

Critical suggestions for improving these webpages are positively welcome

  • Ideally .... we would like a more technically-minded / design-minded volunteer to take over this website
  • ... that's not very likely! … but critical suggestions for improving these pages are positively welcome
  • … but please bear in mind that I am an unpaid non-technical volunteer with limited time and money!
    • so eg busy, producing/distributing/invoicing FQ - so no time for blogs etc
    • we have a web-based Directory in mobile-friendly format on a separate webpage
    • we put our print pages online on this site and on issuu - these pages are A4 size, so won't be suitable for mobiles etc

What we do is produce and distribute a PRINTED folk magazine,

in which you can advertise, and/or you can join us as a Member and then send in your Members' news & listings.

Members can publicise their recordings and reviews. No reviews except from Members, plus (very occasionally) the editors review books.

 

So … what we do is produce and distribute a PRINTED folk magazine! ............................ cheers, Sam.
