In 2011 ELEANOR MEREDITH and I founded
the small press BOLT EDITIONS and
went on to publish The Loop from 2012 - 2015.
We developed the concept, commissioned and
art directed the illustrators, worked with
editors, authors, graphic designers,
junior reporters and volunteers.

The Loop was a newspaper for children
that are a bit too young to read a newspaper.

The Loop was stocked in over ten countries.

Every leaf in this magazine is a song of
creativity and could not be more welcome
in our classrooms.
