Nick Gibbs has edited magazines for nearly 30 years, launching titles as diverse as Sailing Today and British Woodworking, and most recently Living Woods. He retains a fascination for woodworking by hand, but mostly for magazines.

Editing is his passion. Since 2007 he has run his own successful publishing business, producing a range of titles, for sale on the newsstands, by subscription and to provide contract magazines for businesses and associations. His company is currently working on the launch of a new magazine, Barefoot: Treading Lightly on the Planet. A magazine for its times.

Nick also gives talks to inspire groups with his experiences as an editor, with special focus for anyone searching for new purpose in life. “It reminds me of my first days as a would-be journalist, working on the university radio station, learning how to interview and report at a mic, usually on air live.”
