The Lapidus Magazine is an online publication for members of Lapidus International. It is a space to explore creative ideas, challenges and successes in the world of writing for wellbeing, both in the UK and Internationally.
Colour photos, films and illustrations will create a fresh and visually appealing publication.
We currently have two issues of the magazine, with a third on its way, each edited and filled with content supplied by the Lapidus community around the world.
Are you looking to submit to the Lapidus magazine? You can find our submission guidelines here - you do not have to be a member to submit. We publish at one issue of the magazine a year - and more if we have the content!
The Lapidus Magazine is the next step in the journey leading on from the original Lapidus journal (of which you can find issues in our archive). The journal was originally the flagship publication of Lapidus - but over the years it became more difficult for us to gather and share the brilliant content that was coming out of our community. The first step in the journey was the development of the Lapidus International Research and Innovation Community - originally meant to be a one-off research issue for the original journal. This journal was met with so much success, however, that it has developed into the LIRIC journal that we have today - our sister publication, which can be found here.
But the Lapidus community is more than just academics and researchers. As the LIRIC journal grew, the board were aware that there was a massive section of the community who were missing out. This lead to the development of the Lapidus Magazine - a publication written by the writing for wellbeing community, for the writing for wellbeing community. The first issue was designed and edited by the fantastic Dr Helen Foster who set us on the path to where we are today.
Unlike LIRIC, our sister publication, we are not an academic journal. The magazine is practitioner and creative driven. The magazine is here for celebrate and explore those working in the world of writing for wellbeing, or for those who have an interest in joining and learning from it.
