Today we’re announcing three exciting changes to Five out of Ten that will improve lots of things that needed fixing. Without further ado:
- Jess Turner is joining the team as our new Web and Social Editor. You may remember her from Issue 17! Jess will be responsible for our website content and social media presence, including managing our Patreon and website blogs, and naturally she’ll be a regular contributor to the magazine as well. We’re looking forward to Jess getting started and teaching us all how to be more pro-social.
- We’re moving to quarterly publication: that means four issues a year instead of five. Honestly, we’ve struggled to balance the magazine workload with our regular jobs and social lives. Going quarterly will ensure our issues maintain our quality, giving us the time we need to produce the issues without rushes or delays.
- We’re changing the way we commission and produce new features. Rather than sending out a request for pitches every few months, we should be able to commission them on a continuous basis. Better for our contributors, better for us!
These changes will cause some short-term upheaval. As a result, Issue 18 will be “done when it’s done”, but we’re hoping for a release at the end of June / early July. After that, Issue 19 will be released in September, and 20 in December. Please note that we are not currently accepting new pitches, but when we are, we’ll let you know.
If you’ve got any questions, let us know via Patreon or any of our social media channels (which Jess now has to answer, or she’ll get fired). Now if you’ll excuse us, we have some magazines to make!
