Discussed in this Story

Hello everyone,

Nathan here from Dumbo Feather. As many of you know, Issue 69 was my last as editor, and so today I’m very happy to be introducing you to Kirsty de Garis, who started in the role a few months ago and got straight into it putting together our 70th Issue, which is all about a meaningful life. I’ve just had my first peak and it’s stunning ­– brimming with insights that I want to put in my back pocket and take with me on my way. Stay tuned for more on the issue, which comes out in three weeks.

A little about Kirsty: She’s an unassuming powerhouse – thoughtful and sharp, with lots of brilliant ideas about the kind of content that stirs the heart and mind. We’ve actually worked with her for the past six years in a freelance capacity – Kirsty has been our proofreader.

She reached out to us back then saying: “I love the magazine, and how it feels like Christmas when it comes to my postbox four times a year. But I feel heartbroken when I find typos! Can I offer my services as a proofreader?” It was such a great email; we got her on board straight away and have loved working with her since.

Kirsty is a journalist, editor and curator, who most recently developed programs and led a team of curators in programming TEDxSydney for the film and stage. She has also worked as a freelance writer for major publications including The GuardianThe Age, Habitus and Vogue Living.

I’m so happy to have passed the baton on to her, and know she will lead the mag with integrity and care. I’m also happy that I get to stick around, making podcasts and contributing to this wonderful work and community.

Enjoy meeting Kirsty through Issue 70!

Much love,

Nathan
