After two years of steering the mothership, Barney Beech and I are moving on to projects new. With a lot of love in our hearts, and a sizeable tear in the eye, we would like to thank each and every one who helped make Motherland all that it has been – it will always be our fourth baby.

Particular thanks to the astonishingly generous and hugely talented Charlotte Rivers who has worked tirelessly as editor these final months, together with super-star editorial assistant Helen Longstreth.

Thank you, and good night.

Charlotte Philby, Motherland Founder and Editor-in-Chief, August 2014 – October 2016
