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.

The dates on my issue are old – is it out of date?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)203 865 6082 or on subs@slow-journalism.com.

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 am a writer / illustrator and I want to submit a pitch to Delayed Gratification. Who do I talk to?
Please email to theeditors@slow-journalism.com.

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 We do not publish fiction and quality is key.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?
Drop a line to Matthew Lee at matthew@theslow.co.uk

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.
