The Mag Pi magazine is written by the Raspberry Pi community for the community. The authors, layout team and editor come from teaching, IT industry and other professions. The aim of the magazine is given in detail on the Mag Pi web site.
Obtaining a copy
The magazine is available in electronic formats (pdf and flash) as well as a printed magazine. Since this is a community project, it is helpful to donate a small amount or purchase one printed copy of the magazine. Proceeds from sales and donations go towards the community and keeping the magazine online.
Our kickstarter project was launched on 1st December 2012 to allow us to print a collectors edition of the 8 Issues we produced in 2012 (details here: The MagPi Magazine - From Virtual to Reality).
Helping with the magazine
There are several ways you can get involved with the magazine, depending on the time and skills you have available.
An obvious way to help the magazine is to donate towards the running costs of the magazine. There are lots of costs involved with running the site and maintaining the magazine and additional funds will allow us to expand the project to reach more readers.
A paypal donate button is on the main page of the [MagPi site].
Submit an Article
We encourage people to submit their articles to us, simply email the editor (details on the [MagPi site]), with your idea or article and we shall discuss if and when we can fit it in.
Articles can be about anything to do with the Raspberry Pi and it's use.
Please read through the Information for Authors page for details.
Design or layout contributions
The editor is on the lookout for additional design and layout assistance. Those interested in helping should contact the editor (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Each article is prepared as an issuu draft before it is finalised. This allows the community to view and discuss the articles as they are being developed.
The editor welcomes comments on the content, spelling or grammar during the preparation process.
Join the team
Obviously the best way to help with the MagPi is to donate your time and skills by joining the team. Email the editor if you are interested.
At present we communicate using a GoogleGroup to work on and discuss the production of each issue, we always welcome new members to get involved.
Scribus files used for the production of the each issue are available on the [MagPi site]. As an experimental feature, the source code and Scribus files for some articles are also available via [github]
