Exact Editions is pleased to announce that The Writer is now available to individual and institutional subscribers on the Exact Editions digital platform. Subscribers will have access to a growing archive that currently includes over 25 back issues as well as each new issue published every month. 

Founded in 1887, The Writer is one of America’s oldest magazines focussing on the craft of writing. It was first established by two Boston Globe reporters, William H. Hills and Rover Luce, as ‘a monthly magazine to interest and help all literary workers’, in April 1887. Over its 125-year history, The Writer has been overseen by a number of editors and its print edition has gone through a number of physical changes from its very first issue that began with only 18 pages. As of 2011, The Writer has won the Folio magazine Editorial Excellence Award nine times and was sold to Madavor Media in 2012. 

The Writer is focussed entirely on helping up-and-coming writers to hone their craft to become the next generation of great writers, concentrating on exploring the craft of writing, the relationship between writers and industry professionals and changing opportunities for writers in the workplace. Each issue is full of highly insightful interviews with industry professionals and features on the most successful and innovative writers of short stories, novels and poetry.

Readers passionate about books, authors, and writing will find everything they need with every issue of The Writer published 12 times a year. Inside each issue, readers will find:

  • Practical coverage of the craft of writing
  • Profiles of both successful authors and emerging voices
  • Expert how-to articles on writing, freelancing, querying, marketing, and more
  • Publishing strategies and tips, including how to find an agent or editor
  • Inspirational features that speak to writers at all levels

The Exact Editions digital platform offers cross-platform availability across web, iOS, and Android devices, allowing subscribers to access issues at home or on to go, as well as fully searchable issues that ensure readers can search any subject, author name or book title on a single issue or across all the back issues included in their subscription.
