Formally known as Emergence, Nonviolence features articles, Q&As, and poetry. The magazine is published biannually by the Metta Center for Nonviolence, as a resource for practical idealists.

“Would you like to take over our magazine?” the Metta Center for Nonviolence asked me in 2014. I dove right in: Overseeing a change-oriented magazine had been a years-long dream. Seeing the potential to attract new donors to the organization, I evolved what had been a monthly PDF into a biannual print publication, with a total re-brand. I baked up a minimalist design, which was then fine-tuned by a professional designer.
The first print version I oversaw was the relaunch issue of Emergence (Summer 2015; theme: Media & the New Story). It garnered the attention of a UN rep, who invited the Metta Center’s founder and president to speak at the UN about the role media can and should play in fostering peaceful culture. One thing leads to another: In April 2017, the org received special consultative status at the UN’s Economic and Social Council.
More recently, I’ve developed a Sustainability Plan to expand readership. Stay tuned…
