ADVERTISE In New Welsh Reader

Wales’ Leading Literary Magazine

New Welsh Review has been publishing the best writing from Wales, including new poetry, creative fiction, opinion, essays and reviews for over 30 years. In May 2015 we rebranded the magazine as the New Welsh Reader, which publishes original creative work and critical opinion pieces and photography three times a year. All reviews are now available exclusively on the website, both free to view and for subscribers only.

There are a range of advertising opportunities available both in the New Welsh Reader print magazine, in our monthly e-newsletters and on our website. Adverts vary from full colour to black and white, full page to half page, website banners to inserts. Read more below about the profile of the magazine and the opportunities available or email to request a media pack, with the digest of advertising rates.
