Hello! Rife Magazine ceased publishing new work in July 2022.

We've kept the magazine online as an archive and hope you'll still continue to enjoy all of its contributions from the last 8 years.

Graduation – One Year Later (Video)

It’s been a whole year since Jon graduated from university and he’s made a video on his YouTube channel explaining what life has been like ever since.

I finished my Fine Art degree last year, graduated from UWE and now I’m working here at Rife magazine. That’s the short version of the story (without all the weirdness, lack of direction, rubbish jobs and search for something creative). Life after education is a strange period that takes some getting used to, and i’ve found that some reassurance always helps when things aren’t looking how you always dreamed.
