A note from the Founder:

 

I started the magazine in June after feeling like there wasn’t a creative space in Edinburgh that allowed for student-focused journalism and opinion. Taking into consideration the events of this year, I wanted to build a platform that encouraged students to freely express their thoughts and speak out when necessary. We’ve now expanded to a team of 10 people who share the same values alongside me and they have been so enthusiastic and dedicated in growing the magazine. I’m also really grateful to the writers and artists who we’ve gone to and who have come to us to be involved. It’s been so surprising to see what this has turned into and I can’t wait to see what happens in the New Year. Thank you so much for following and reading our magazine 💜

OUR SECTIONS

EDITS 

The EDI Edits section focuses on the issues that matter to Edinburgh. From student life to cultural movements, these are longer reads that allow writers and readers to delve more into a topic.

VOICES

The EDI Voices section allows for as many different perspectives as possible to be heard. We want to elevate the voices of the marginalised and underrepresented and stimulate debate.

STORIES 

Lose yourself in words. Poems, short stories, prose verses and travellers’ tales.

TRENDING 

What's hot, what's not? From Spotify playlists for a sunny meadows afternoon to the best reads about the history of race in the UK, EDI Trending will be your place to find out what Edinburgh is listening to, reading, watching and cooking up this summer.

SURVIVAL GUIDE

From the best brunch spots and dimly lit pubs to our favourite lockdown walks, everything you need to get the most out of Scotland's capital.
