Our Mission

The Fine Print is a quarterly magazine based in Gainesville, Fla. founded in 2008.
We aim to serve the Gainesville community by providing an independent outlet for political, social and arts coverage through original, local and in-depth reporting.

What is Advocacy Journalism?

Advocacy journalism — what The Fine Print publishes — intentionally and transparently assumes a non-objective viewpoint to achieve a social, political or environmental purpose. Great examples of national advocacy publications include The Nation, Mother Jones, The American Prospect and In These Times.

Where Can You Find Us?

We have stacks and boxes all around town and on UF and Santa Fe campuses, but we’re always looking to distribute in new places. If you’d like us to start putting stacks in your business, let us know at editors@thefineprintmag.org.


How Are You Funded?

We are a non-profit magazine, meaning we exist through private donations from the community and fundraising events. All money goes toward keeping us free and in print–if you have the inclination, any donation is much appreciated.

How Can You Get Involved?

We’re always looking for talented, dedicated and creative people to join our staff. Opportunities include writing/reporting, copy editing, graphic and layout design, photography, audio and video production, illustration, and advertising. If you have ideas to build upon what we do, we’d love to hear that, too.

If you’re interested in joining our staff, please fill out our staff application and send samples of your best work to editors[at]thefineprintmag.org. Freelance submissions or story pitches should also be sent to that email.
