Advertise in The Author – graphical


How to book your graphical ad in The Author.

  • Get in touch with our editorial team (see below for contact details) before completing your purchase so we can check availability. We can also check your artwork if you have it available.
  • Return to this page, select the required size
  • Select the edition in which you want your ad to appear (if you are booking space in multiple editions, this will be the first journal in which it should run)
  • In the quantity field, select the number of editions in which your ad should run. If you select 4 we’ll automatically apply a 15% discount.
  • Click Add to Basket, then follow the prompts to complete and pay for your order.
  • Send us your signed off artwork ready for placement.

We’ll email you a VAT receipt as soon as your payment has been processed.

Before you book and pay for your advertisement, please email [email protected] so we can confirm space availability with you.

We’ll need to know:

  • The size of your advertisement
  • In which edition(s) we should publish your advertisement (Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter)
  • It’s a good idea to also send us your artwork for checking

There’s a 15% discount for four advertisements booked and paid for in advance.
