Curating this magazine

11th October 2018

This website is about curating the past. When I closed down Arts in Leicester magazine, I must have thought something like ‘been there. Done that.’

Some three years later I looked back at my work, the hundreds of articles I wrote for my arts magazine. I thought about the value of some of that work and its loss to the Internet. The wider public.

That is why I started this website. Why I have been collecting and putting back, online, some of the articles originally published on the Arts in Leicester site.

Many of those articles were part of my corpus de litterarum operibus. The body of literature that represents my life’s work, as an author. Now that this site is fully active I am working through the archives of the old magazine, looking for articles that have not yet been uploaded.

10th October 2017

I started this website blog today. My plan is to publish all the articles that were previously published on the magazine that I edited called – Arts in Leicester.

The articles that appear on this blogsite have all previously been published in the online magazine called Arts in Leicestershire. The magazine was closed and taken offline in 2016. All the content was stored in an archive.
