About

Who Are We?

With a team of academics, activists and commentators, Topical Magazine offers something unique.

Aiming to address fundamental questions, our content looks at contemporary issues through a philosophical and accessible lens.

Doing a lot of research and sifting the internet, we uncover the topics that matter to you. We work hard to listen to our readers, keeping abreast of important narrative trends.

We are always one step ahead giving the analysis and commentary you need.

We know readers have become suspicious of the media, and rightly so. Too many platforms have shown themselves short-sighted, failing to deliver the right stories. Yet, we know readers are seeking an outlet they can trust.

We aim to give you balance and objectivity. We make sure what you read is well-researched, far-sighted and free of subterfuge. Ensuring we have a rigorous vetting procedure, our writers are second to none.

Topical magazine only publishes pieces that are, as our name suggests, topical. Additionally, our articles discuss niche subjects in an intellectual yet accessible manner.
