Please make an appointment before visiting us! Also, we’ve got terribly new computers (the show-offs that we are) which don’t have CD drives in. Save your postage, send us emails instead!

We have had ‘quite a few’ people enquiring about work experience of late. Unfortunately, we don’t currently have the capacity to have any additional bodies in the office as it stands, nor the time to mentor anyone in a way any of you lovely people would deserve.


If you’re looking to get something commissioned on DIY, it’s best to email the whole team (addresses below - we won’t bite, honest). Don’t expect an instant response - pitches will be discussed in weekly editorial meetings.

For further specifics on everyone’s role and what’s best to contact them for, see below.
