Who are ya?

Nutmeg is a collective of writers and authors, as well as editors and designers, who are passionate about the game in Scotland and want a publication that reflects that.

Nutmeg’s contributors will be given the freedom to write expansively on topics that are not determined by the day-to-day news agenda.

We have taken inspiration from other quality football publications such as The Blizzard and plan a similar format, somewhere between a book and a magazine. Like The Blizzard it will be all about the writing.

The only way to ensure you get to enjoy Nutmeg is to subscribe.

Scottish football is known for many things. Some good, some bad and some just downright rotten. But there is no shortage of great characters, fascinating stories and passionate groups of players and supporters as well as important issues, all of which deserve to be written about at length and by the best, most informed, most entertaining and most illuminating writers.

This publication is here to reflect that. To look at the past, present and future of the game in Scotland.

And the name we’ve given it also reflects that. It isn’t parochial. It refers to a cheeky skill that we all appreciate whether it’s Lionel Messi during a pre-match warm-up or ourselves during the 5-a-side match on a cold, wet and windy night.

If you’d like to work with us then please get in touch. We are looking for writers, photographers, illustrators, sales people, sponsors, in fact anyone who loves the game and wants to support what we’re doing.

Who’s behind it?

We are a small editorial consultancy based in Edinburgh, but with a large international reputation – and a wide range of expertise.

Palmer Watson consists of Ally Palmer and Terry Watson. Between us we have accrued many national and international design and editorial awards, both from our time as senior figures on The Scotsman and Scotland on Sunday and as Palmer Watson.

We have assembled a wide range of football journalists and writers who are keen to be part of a pool of contributors. We will also unearth new voices and new approaches to writing about the beautiful game.
