In 2001, Futureversity
launched Nang!, a glossy lifestyle magazine written by young people for young
people. Packed with articles on music, fashion, politics, film, real-life
issues and careers, Nang! also featured interviews with all kinds of
celebrities, from Dizzee Rascal to Boris Johnson. It was distributed free
across London to universities, colleges, sixth forms, youth clubs and
libraries, built up a loyal following, won awards including Guardian Student
Magazine of the Year 2007 and basically wowed everyone who read it.
Ten years later, we felt it
was about time we got everything Nang! had to offer - and more - and put it
online to respond to the changing times. So, we created FV1, an online magazine with its own microsite. Still full of brilliant articles written by 16-25
year olds, it has loads of amazingly cool interactive stuff too. What more
could a young person want?
We're looking for articles written by young people for the FV1
website. Your article can be on anything you feel passionate about and
must be no longer than 300 words. Email it, along with your name, age,
borough and contact details, to email@example.com. The best ones
will appear on the site!
Read our final issues of Nang!:
|Issue One 2010
|Issue Three 2009
