A Magazine for Sheffield

Issue 140 November 2019

At Now Then we recognise that we need to celebrate and amplify the voices of marginalised people in our society. Over the last 11 years we’ve not always got that right, but we want our magazine to represent the vast diversity of perspectives and lived experiences present in our city.

This is a call out for new writers, but especially those from communities who are often excluded from mainstream media due to their ethnicity or national origin, their sexual orientation, their gender or their disability, as well as community groups who think their stakeholders, clients and customers may be interested.

If you want to get involved with Now Then as a contributor or just find out more, come down to our next writers’ social, Wednesday 4 December from 7pm at The Devonshire Cat, or drop me an email.
