I hope you and Stephanie Taylor will forgive me using her piece on creativity (p.590) as an excuse to blow our own creative trumpet.

This feels like the most exciting time I have experienced in almost 15 years with The Psychologist and the Research Digest. We have a new full-time journalist, and our Digest editor back in the saddle full-time. It's a creative and committed team, with a clear mission to make The Psychologist and Digest the daily authoritative voices in psychology.

But we can't do this without the support of the Society membership. We are grateful for the backing of our editorial advisory committee, led by new Chair Dr Catherine Loveday. And every month we have our contributors, aiming to engage and inform with their personal and professional stories. Have a look at our revamped 'One on one' on p.632: the tweaks to the format would be nothing without Professor Tom Dickins' thoughtful efforts. Engage with us, and we are pushed to new creative heights. The time is now: see contribute and get in touch!
