Created in 2019 by Mercy Ferrars, who has an academic background in English philology and philosophy, and Adrien Fields, who has an academic background in cultural science and history, we had a vision to impact culture by sharing our voices. At FFMag, international voices have since spoken up on the struggle(s) in the system while also curating the beauty of the arts.

We are a DIY magazine. What does that mean? Well, prior to creating Ferrars & Fields, Mercy and Adrien had experience in cultural science and (journalistic and creative) writing. But they had never run a magazine together. We had to learn about all the small and bigger things and figure everything out from scratch. This is why Ferrars & Fields is and always has been a passion project with no claim to perfection. We are growing, every day, every year.

We publish on the whole spectrum of what it means to be a fully fleshed out human being. Our essays, research, vulnerability and stories discuss queerness, feminism, anti-racism, disability and mental health as well as art, literature, film and media, featuring an exclusive digital exhibition. We make ourselves heard like thunder in a world overrun by battle, and we always seek to amplify the voices of others.

In late 2020, our co-founder Adrien left Ferrars & Fields and the magazine became a MFPublishing project fronted by Mercy. From starting as a two-person-blog to turning into a ten+-person editorial team, a vast expansion in topics, formats and voices and surviving two years of a global pandemic, Ferrars & Fields has gone through changes, self-discoveries and rich journalistic experience alongside its creators, writers and editors.
