Bill first worked on Land&People as a consultant in 1989, writing almost all of what was then a 12-page brochure. As the publication grew into a real magazine, he began to write features and shorter copy. In 2007, he took over editorship of Land&People, supervised a redesign, and served as editor for eight years. In addition to assigning and editing all the feature content–and occasionally crafting a feature himself–Bill wrote all the short content and supervised all design and production. A review of the magazine will give you a pretty good idea of Bill’s standards as a writer and editor.
