How often is the magazine published?
We are aiming to release new magazines on a bimonthly (that’s one every two months, not twice a month!) to quarterly basis.
What is the format of the magazine? Is every article based on one theme?
Every issue of Five out of Ten has ten articles: two each from five authors. The first five are chosen by the writers and don’t share a common theme, while the latter five are all dedicated to the same theme.
How much do writers get paid?
We split all profits from the magazine equally between the five authors (including the editor), minus transaction fees and the cost of maintaining the site’s hosting and infrastructure.

Who is eligible for a ‘Discount’ price?
Our standard price is £5. We think the magazine is worth that price, but we also want to reach as many readers as possible, including those on a limited budget. From time to time we’ll offer discounted prices. Five out of Ten works on an honours system: pay what you can afford.
