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.

Helping with the magazine

There are several ways you can get involved with the magazine, depending on the time and skills you have available.

Donating Money

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 (

Proof reading

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.

Source files

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
