  • The Skinny September 2021

We’ve got a bit of a student focus this September, bringing back our annual student guide after last year’s hiatus. It's our way of saying welcome to the city, fellow young people.

The articles are all relevant regardless of your phase of life, though. We look at routes into getting involved in community engagement and activism, talk to author and journalist Rachel Thompson about ways of addressing sexual violence within society and share some hard-won tips on financial planning. We meet an Open University professor, Sophie Grace Chappell, to hear about taking the longer road to major life decisions, and salute the return of the club. The 16-page supplement inside this month's magazine, and it's also going to be available as a standalone, so look out for that.

Also in this month's mag are the results of two of our writer development programmes. An in-depth interview with Turkish artist and video activist
belit sağ was developed through a writing programme with Alchemy Film & Arts and LUX Scotland, while we're also showcasing the work of EIFF's 2021 crop of Young Critics. We also take to Hamish Hawk, We Were Promised Jetpacks and Stina Marie Claire; film looks ahead to Take One Action; art meets Japanese artist Chikako Yamashiro; comedy chats to Rob Auton about returning to live performance ahead of his new book; and Eve Livingston discusses her union manifesto Make Bosses Pay.

Below is a list of places you can pick up your free copy of the September issue – we'll be working our way across Scotland over the course of the next week-or-so and will update this page as we go. If you want to support what we do consider subscribing to the mag (details below) or, if you Run A Thing and want people to Come To It, advertising in an upcoming issue or online.
