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.

Rosie McCabe

Hi, I’m Rosie McCabe. I’m 23. Raised in a small village in the shires, just south of Bristol, past the Dundry ring road and nestled next to a blue spot known as Chew Valley Lake; in essence, I am a West Country gal. As a writer, I feel connected to both the rural beauty and peculiarity of country life as well as the bustling hub of culture, art and business Bristol has to offer. It is a city of character, as my mother says: a city of inclusiveness, re-invention, collective voices and empathy. I am privileged to be considered as one of the young voices of this city and produce articles shared amongst this warm, passionate community. I am also a budding journalist, history grad, sister, daughter and book-absorber amongst other things.
