Seeking adverts of a literary, bookish or academic nature

Would any organisations out there like to help fund Willesden Herald: New Short Stories 11? We are open to a limited number of full page adverts of a literary, bookish or academic nature. Enquiries to editor@willesdenherald.com. Willesden Herald and Pretend Genius Press are non-profit, volunteer-based ventures. We receive no public or other official funding.

We’re setting a limit of three advertising pages. Rates: Page in front £150, back £125. In return we will include a permanent “supported by” icon and link of your choice on this website and in book publicity. Technical constraints: Monochrome, space available 90 x 170 mm, after allowing for page margins.

Short Stories: Accepting submissions, more required

Update 30 August 2019: So far we have selected and confirmed three out of 88. The closing date is 30 September but as we’re “optioning” as we go, it’s advisable not to delay sending your submissions. The contributors already span oceans both geographically and in theme and styles. There is no reading fee. Each writer receives two copies of the book when it’s published.
