"There's this feeling, once you leave where you grew up, that you don't totally belong there again. You can live whatever you want to live. Be whoever you want to be. You have time.”
Submit your work to us and become part of the journey.
We aspire to be a space for the unheard, the oppressed and the observers. Together we impact culture.
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.
Ways to participate @Ferrars & Fields are plenty.
You can choose between becoming a core member of our team if you fancy publishing your work on a regular basis.

We welcome your ideas and your stories always.
We are looking for both authors and editors. Whether you like writing or editing texts more, shoot your shot and send us an e‑mail. You will receive our onboarding guide and further information. If you’re applying as a writer, please have one or a few topics ready.

It goes without saying that our requirement for a pitch is an understanding of humanity as a complex whole, entangled in a complex web of struggles. Most of all things, our magazine is ought to be a safe space for women, non-male genders, readers of colour, queer readers, and our staff themselves.
Hand in your pitch with a general idea of the topic and a working headline to email@example.com. Please include writing references showcasing your journalistic savvy.
