Blogs: cryingforavision & Stride magazine

cryingforavision is a blog by Steve Scott which aims to develop an ongoing conversation about arts, cultures and faith. I worked with Steve, through commission4mission, to organize some of the different `Run with the Fire’ art exhibitions and events held in and around London, during the Olympic summer of 2012. You can learn more about `Run With The Fire’ by clicking here, also here, and here.

Scott is a British mixed-media artist, writer, lecturer, and performer. Upon completing art school in the mid-1970s, Steve moved to the United States at the request of a small record label and began recording songs. He now has ten albums of original work released on several small independent labels. The work ranges from rock music to more experimental poetry and spoken word, performed over electronic loop based compositions.

Stride magazine was founded in 1982 by Rupert Loydell. Since then it has had various incarnations, most recently in an online edition since the late 20th century. You can visit the previous site which is gathering dust over at As of May 2016 Stride magazine is published at Rupert Loydell is the author and editor of many books. You can read about his Shearsman titles here and his Knives Forks and Spoons titles here.

Loydell was the managing editor of Stride Books from 1981 to 2011, and continues to edit Stride magazine online. After leaving university, he was a freelance writer, editor and artist, and also spent time as Exeter arts development officer, and wrote several creative writing modules for the Open University. He worked at the universities of Bath, Warwick and Plymouth and for the Royal Literary Fund before joining the English department at Falmouth University in 2006.
