WATCH: John Malouff talks about his column Mind Matters:
Each week a variety of columnists are published in the Armidale Extra and on the Armidale Express website.
The topics range from gardening to psychology, as well as education, religion and history.
With 2017 drawing to a close we have decided to take the opportunity to talk to some of our writers about their columns.
As well as explaining what they write about, and what insight they are trying to provide, we also asked them about the feedback they receive from the community.
John Malouff is an Associate Professor of Psychology at the University of New England and he writes a column called Mind Matters.
His column runs in the Extra each fortnight, as well as online.
