About the 58

the fifty eight

The 58 magazine was born on an average rainy Wednesday. It was like any other Wednesday in the UK winter – cold and gloomy. Rubbish weather perusal.

Still, an idea was thought of, and then and there our journey began.

We are an independent boutique publisher celebrating strong opinions and gifted writers. We’re here to speak our minds unapologetically.


The 58 wouldn’t have been possible without our contributors. Every single person that has written for the 58 is an essential voice whether they’ve contributed regularly or just once!

We’re always on a lookout for new voices. If you’d like to write for the 58, drop a line to the editor.
