Contents

There's a strong theme of 'the arts' this month, from the main articles to our 'Big picture', 'Careers' and 'Looking back' pieces. On p.630 you'll find the top three in our poetry competition, which attracted more than 50 entries. And on our website you can read a book extract from Charles Fernyhough, on inner voices and the creative muse.

In my mind, the arts have always sat well alongside science in psychology and in The Psychologist. I think one of the most gratifying aspects of our development in recent years has been increasing coverage of psychology in its many cultural overlaps: plays, films, novels, music and more. Much of this is collected at www.thepsychologist.org.uk/reviews and you can find regular opportunities to contribute by following us on Twitter @psychmag.

We are currently planning a major overhaul of our 'Reviews' coverage, alongside a wider redesign. We will need your views and your contributions more than ever. Do get in touch to help us write the story of our next decade.
