Who’s behind pebble?
Georgina Wilson-Powell is a magazine editor with 14 years experience, having worked with BBC Good Food, Lonely Planet Traveller, BBC Travel and Time Out (in addition to setting up a music and street art magazine back when street art was called graffiti). After coming to the realisation that we all need to start making a dent in the planet’s problems, rather than retrain as something useful like a mushroom farmer or shoreline manager, Georgina decided to use her experience and set up pebble as a platform to support, share and promote positive stories from people who are doing far more cool and worthy things than writing for a living. It took her longer to decide on a name than it did to upend her life and launch an independent magazine.
