Honestly Woman digital magazine is produced & published by Bev Ryan. We promote our clients’ books free of charge if we feel they are of interest to our magazine readership.
In 2018 we will house all articles on the HW website and will distribute them regularly to our readers via email. We will produce full-colour magazine layouts such as those above from time to time.
Honestly Woman began life as a print magazine (below) in January 2006, proudly sitting on newsagencies’ shelves amidst the big-girl mags like ‘O’. That was a thrill, I can tell you.
In conjunction with the magazine I also ran events, and even co-founded a not-for-profit group, WomenRace4…Redkite. We went on to win the tactical division of the 2007 Brisbane to Gladstone Yacht Race on South Passage, a gaff-rigged schooner, with a fantastic group of women, now dear friends, all because I stepped up and made that dream of publishing a priority. You can read my blog post here about how it all began. (A note of thanks – the nfp co-founder, Di Halden, continued to manage WomenRace4…Redkite after my departure.)
When I reluctantly chose to cease the print magazine during the GFC, there was not the plethora of digital devices that we have today, so I felt then that an e-magazine was not an easy-read option for many. But the magazine has continued to call me and here we are again.
You can read more of my own story of reinvention in the first issue.
It’s wonderful to have you here!
