Contact DIY Ways to get in touch


Postal Address

We don’t currently have a communal physical office (you know, the obvious), so please get in touch with us below if you’d like to send something nice our way.


If you’re looking to get something commissioned on DIY, it’s best to email the whole team (addresses below - we won’t bite, honest). Don’t expect an instant response - pitches will be discussed in weekly editorial meetings.

For further specifics on everyone’s role and what’s best to contact them for, see below.

Managing Editor: Sarah Jamieson ([email protected])

Speak to Sarah about cover opportunities, print commissions, brand activity and any general enquiries related to the DIY team.

Founding Editor: Emma Swann ([email protected])

Talk to Emma for festival enquiries, album and live reviews, and live photography. Please note, we work about eight weeks ahead when it comes to record reviews!

Features Editor: Lisa Wright ([email protected])

Speak to Lisa about feature opportunities across print. Also she’s your woman if you’re interested in co-promoting, DIY Presents events or having DIY host a stage at your festival.

Digital Editor: Elly Watson ([email protected])

Talk to Elly about online features, news and other digital bits.

Note: for Neu / new band coverage, it’s best to email the whole editorial team.
