In the picture


The editor would like to invite U3A photographic groups to contribute pictures for use in the magazine.
She is looking for shots that will illustrate the various topics covered in forthcoming editions. These are
February 2017: archaeology and local history
June 2017: Food and drink appreciation and antiques
September 2017: Creative writing – running a group
Phyllis is particularly keen to find excellent pictures for the front cover.
So get your photographers snapping and see how creative they can be.

Journalists & photographers wanted


The new editor would like to recruit a team of volunteers with experience in journalism to take the magazine forward.
Phyllis, a journalist with over 40 years experience on both newspapers and magazines, would like to see a newsier approach but needs a network of people to dig out the interesting stories and pictures from our 383,000 members.
We all know that the U3A is full of enterprising people with great tales to tell. Now is your chance to help share these stories with the members.
With a team of experts across the country Sources will be able to deliver an exciting and relevant publication.


Stories and pictures for the new year 2017 edition


The new year 2017 edition of Sources magazine will include articles on archaeology and local history.
I’d like to invite contributions to that edition so if you have groups covering either area please let them know that the deadline will be November 30, 2016.
A guide to writing an article is available from the U3A shop on the website or by request from the national office.
