The Front Line May 09 2014, 0 Comments

Fiona Tunnicliff is our Content Manager and has been on the front line of 'Earth Garden' publishing for the past eight plus years.

The best thing about working for Earth Garden is the amazing stories that come my way. They are not just dry words on paper – the stories are alive! There is passion and conviction behind the stories and it never ceases to amaze me when the 'heart' shines through.

The worst thing is the amazing stories that come my way. We can't publish everything! If we did we would need to work around the clock to bring it out weekly. With enough coffee perhaps...

The other best thing about working for Earth Garden is the team of people who make it. A creative, compassionate and dedicated team – and I count my lucky stars to be part of it.

The most challenging thing about working for Earth Garden is the pressure of deadlines, but I must confess it is usually me putting the pressure on! I do try to crack my whip in the nicest way possible (no correspondence to be entered into).

My favourite EG columns? Well I love 'em all of course ... but I have to say that I never escape an issue without shedding a few tears over a Jackie French insight or cracking up at a Tanya Jenkyn one liner. Who knew herbs were such fun?

Right now we are in the throes of another EG production and it is a time of much excitement and careful focus. I confess that I won't get a good nights sleep until the wonderful Winter edition is all inked up, printed and the journal is in my hands. That is always a truly reverential moment. Then we get on with the next one!
