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.

The Rife Team

Mary Barker

At 16, Mary is a young, passionate, and excessively tall woman who has a lot to say. Born and raised in Bedminster, she has huge love for Bristol’s ins and outs which come in handy when she gets lost on late night city cycles. Mary has an abundance of poem-stuffed notebooks that she brings to open mic nights. Her writing stems from fantasy, romance and a heavy dose of reality. When she’s not rowing on the docks she’s meeting up with friends for barbeques and parties. Inspirations like Lemn Sissay and Caitlin Moran keep her questioning, embracing and challenging the world around her.
