FAQs

GETTING THE MAGAZINE

Where can I buy DG?
You can find a list of our stockists here, but the easiest and cheapest way to get DG is to subscribe. You can also buy back issues at our online store.

I want to write to the editor or respond to an article. How can I do that?
We’d love to hear from you. Feel free to email us at rob@theslow.co.uk or marcus@theslow.co.uk.

How can I contact an author?
Email Loes at loes@dgquarterly.com and say who you would like to be put in touch with: she will make sure the message is passed on.

The dates on my issue are old – is it out of date?
Probably not! Each issue is published three months after the dates covered, to give us time to revisit events and give the final analysis. So the issue covering October/November/December, is published in March, the issue covering January/February/March is published in June, the April/May/June issue is published in September and the July/August/September issue is published in December.

I would like to subscribe / order back issues. How?
That’s great news. You can subscribe here and we have a limited number of back issues available here.

How do I contact your subscriptions department to change my address, ask about missing issues etc.? You can contact our subs department on +44 (0)1795 414 668 or on dg@servicehelpline.co.uk.

Are you distributed outside of the UK?
Absolutely: we have an ever-growing international distribution, you can see a full list of stockists here. Orders from our online store and subscriptions also ship internationally.

GETTING INVOLVED

I have an idea for an article, who can I send it to?
We love ideas – please email any to rob@theslow.co.uk.

I am a writer / illustrator and I want to submit a piece or pitch to Delayed Gratification. Who do I talk to?
You can contact the editors Rob Orchard and Marcus Webb via email on rob@theslow.co.uk or marcus@theslow.co.uk.

Are all pitches reviewed?
Yes they are all read, without exception, but given the number of submissions we receive, we cannot always send an acknowledgment.

What sort of articles are you looking for?
Delayed Gratification is dedicated to Slow Journalism. Our ideal article brings fresh insight into an event in the preceding quarter or uncovers an unreported story from the period. We do not publish fiction and quality is key.

I wrote a proposal a month ago and I still have not received a reply a month later. Is this normal?
We receive many ideas and it is not always possible to respond. Do not hesitate to follow up over email.

I would like to sell Delayed Gratification, how can I do that?
Simply speak to Loes Witschge, our assistant editor. You can reach her by email at loes@dgquarterly.com or by phone on +44 (0)207 580 3090.

Do you create infographics for anyone else?
Yes we do – drop Rob a line at rob@theslow.co.uk to discuss what we can do. We also run regular courses in feature-writing and infographics creation – check out our events and classes section to see the latest.

I would like to do an internship at DG. How do I apply?
We love to work with new writers and designers, but we can only accommodate a few interns over the year. To submit a nomination, please email loes@theslow.co.uk with your CV and some recent examples of your work.
