About Us

The World Community Press is our Corporate name.
The Significato Press is one of our publishing "imprints".

The website has now been integrated into this website, with all traffic from that former website now directed to this page. We have tightened our focus, and at least for a while, are no longer listing our open source software.

The Significato Journal is owned by Peter Falkenberg Brown and Kimmy Sophia Brown. Peter and Kimmy Sophia serve as Co-Publishers and Senior Editors. Kimmy Sophia also serves as the Content Curator, working with writers and curating content, as well as contributing her own content.

(Kimmy's former byline was "Kim Korman Brown".)

They founded The World Community Press (WCP) in 1992 (under a different name).

WCP's primary mission is to support the establishment of a peaceful world, based on the virtues of love, kindness, compassion, and the creation and propagation of beauty. To that end, we publish this online journal, "Significato ~ nectar for the soul". “Significato” is the Italian word for “meaning” or “value”, as in “the meaning of life”.

We write short stories and other literary items.

Peter also does public speaking on spiritual, mystical, and social issues.

Peter and Kim have four lovely children: Tymon, Grace, Ranin, and Tadin. And one lovely dog.

Irish LaneWhy we have a photo of a beautiful country lane as our background:

... because it's a beautiful country lane! (in Ireland) and we would love to walk down it every day. Part of our "writing mission" is to espouse and encourage the love of nature as an integral part of spiritual, mental and physical health. We believe that the future world will see a much tighter integration between nature and our daily lives. The photo was taken by
