Buy the Rife Book

We did it! Rife Magazine has published a book of essays by young people with your help. And it’s out on 11 July.

Young people in this country are facing a chasm of doubt and instability. Mental health problems are widespread, university fees are rising, job opportunities are drying up, and the prospect of ever owning a home is increasingly out of reach. But this generation is noticeably absent from the opinion columns, comment pieces and news reports of the mainstream media.

From the creative minds behind Rife Magazine comes this anthology of twenty passionate voices, all under the age of twenty-four, writing across a spectrum of topics that matter to them. It holds a mirror up to the experience of young people in the UK today, with essays on money, mental health, sex, gender, inequality, education, crime and the future.

Bracing, honest and set against what can often seem an apocalyptic backdrop, these stories are nevertheless full of ideas and solidarity to draw on through these uncertain times.

Curated by author and editor of The Good Immigrant Nikesh Shukla and journalist/Rife alumna Sammy Jones, Rife: 21 Stories From Britain’s Youth collects twenty-one young people’s essays about money, mental health, sex, gender, equality, education, crime and the future.

The writers, all under 24 at time of commissioning and selected from all over the UK, include Ella Marshall, Liv Little, Charlie Brinkhurst-Cuff, Amber Kirk-Ford, Rosalind Jana, Ailsa Fineron and many more.
