Advertising in Link Magazine

Please read our general advertising information, if you have not already done so.

Link is our bi-monthly magazine, which goes out to our member groups, to individual members and various writing related organisations. Publicity copies may be sent to appropriate sources, offered to libraries etc, and copies are also available at our annual NAWGFest which is open to the public as well as members.

We currently have around 100 writing groups who receive three printed copies per group, which are then passed around in the group and available at group meetings. We have a similar number of individual members, who each receive a printed copy.

In addition, PDF digital copies of the magazine are sent to:

  • Groups who have large membership lists and have opted to receive PDFs.
  • Groups or individuals who are prepared to forgo the posted option.

PDF digital copies are available on the website, for all to see, two months after publication.

Unlike some 'potential views' suggested for some non-member magazines, each advert placed in Link has considerably more actual views than the raw membership figures would suggest and viewers who are very focussed on writing. Our group sizes vary from 4—5 to 30 plus.

Note: If you place an advert in Link and/or on the website, you get a free mention in our e-newsletter, mailed out to hundreds of our members.

Members' Allowance

Included in the NAWG annual membership fee, the following free adverting in Link magazine is provided.

  • 2 × 1/8 page adverts per group, throughout their year's membership. They may be in a single edition, or in two separate editions, but there may be restrictions (see below).
  • 2 × 1/8 page adverts per individual member, throughout their year's membership. They may be in a single edition, or in two separate editions, but there may be restrictions (see below).

Advertising in a particular edition is not guaranteed. They may be deferred due the amount of available space in the magazine. There may also be deferred due to time-sensitive content that takes priority.

Decisions regarding advertising in Link are at the discretion of the editor.

Here's what to do to get your advert in Link magazine.

  1. Please prepare your advertisement in "print ready" form as one of the following:

    • A Microsoft Word document. Please use as little formatting as possible.
