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.

Zia Holloway

Zia is an alumni of the BFI film academy and is a BAFTA-mentored screenwriter. Always on the move (having lived in a grand total of sixteen houses) and constantly immersing herself in new environments, the amazing people she has met and unique places she has lived inspire much of her writing. When she isn’t writing, she’s either hiking in the Welsh mountains or watching way too many films.
