The Philatelic Communicator

The Philatelic Communicator, the journal of the American Philatelic Society Writers Unit #30, has a new editor and 'new look' which includes color according to Dr. Everett L. Parker, an associate Global Stamp News editor.

In the July/August edition of Global Stamp News, Parker writes in his Philatelic Journals column, "New editor Albert W. Starkweather of Tampa, Florida titled his opening article 'Let's Get Visual!' as he discussed online publishing. Ronald E. Lesher discussed color in philatelic journals, and Thomas M. Fortunato wrote about Internet websites promoting society growth."

There were several other articles in the journal, including an article on non-philatelic outlets for philatelic writers.

For additional information, contact Secretary George E. Griffenhagen, 2501 Drexel St, Vienna, VA 22180-6906 or click here to go to the Philatelic Communicator Website where current and back issues can be downloaded in a PDF format.

Dr. Parker also writes,"If your society journal is not reviewed, it is likely because I do not receive it. Please ask that I be placed on your secretary or publisher's mailing list. The address is: Dr. Everett L. Parker, 719 Moosehead Lake Road, Greenville, ME 04441-9727; email:
