Since 2010, True Loaf magazine has been informing and (hopefully) entertaining Campaign supporters around the world. In late 2018, we relaunched our website, including a new section for archive and online original features.

Have your say

Campaign coordinator Chris Young, who edits the magazine and website, would like to hear from Campaign supporters what they would like to read about in True Loaf, and from our wider network of friends what they'd like to see more of on the site.

For example, items on:

  • Each of our ambassadors
  • Other brilliant bakers within and beyond our network
  • Bread heroes – be they bakers, or millers, grain growers etc.
  • Microbakers telling their own stories
  • People running inspirational therapeutic/social bready enterprises/projects
  • Recipes
  • Baking technique mini-masterclasses
  • The place of bread in a particular country
  • Mills and milling
  • The science of baking
  • Photo-based features

...or something else?

Please email

Write for us

As part of the charity Sustain, we rely on people volunteering to write for our magazine and website. We totally understand and support the fact that a voluntary gig isn’t for everyone, but if it is…

…please send a very short outline (not the finished piece - bullet points will do) of your proposed previously-unpublished article by email to the True Loaf magazine editor.

Chris is open to pitches of any bread-related features you'd like to write, be that:

  • On a specific topic
  • A profile piece of a person, project, organisation or business with a particularly interesting story
  • Something from the list above
  • Anything else related to grain, milling and bread

We’re particularly keen to keep improving the way we represent and highlight the breadth of folk behind the rise of Real Bread worldwide. We know that it's not just a bunch of middle class white blokes and that it's going on pretty much everywhere, but we need help us to show everyone else.

As a guide, features in the magazine are 450 words max for one page and 900 max for two pages. Deadlines are in March, May, August and November. Word counts and deadlines for the website are flexible. The editor will advise wordcount and deadline when commissioning a piece.

Picture this

We'd also love to hear from you if you’re:

  • A designer/artist who’s game for helping to illustrate the magazine / an article, or create a poster to appear in the magazine and be available for Campaign supporters to print off.
  • A photographer who could help bring an article to life with a killer image, or perhaps get involved in our #WeAreRealBread initiative

Again, please email Chris at Campaign HQ.
