Happy New Year! Well, as happy as you can manage under the circumstances.

After a few weeks off to re-energise, we're back with our January issue. This one centres on creativity, and celebrating it for its own sake. Whether it's music, writing, drawing, cooking, building, filming, playing, sewing, sculpting or another creative verb that we haven't thought of, engaging your creativity can help you express yourself in difficult circumstances.

Will every creative action have an immediate pay-off? No. Will your creative pursuits net you fame and fortune? Probably not. Is it still worth trying, failing, growing, learning and improving? ABSOLUTELY. This month's issue is full of inspiration, provocation and opportunities – scroll on to find out where to pick up your copy, with a cover illustration by the fantastic Max Machen.
