Supporting Clarkesworld

One of the things I discovered from the results of the annual Clarkesworld Magazine reader’s poll was that nearly a quarter of the participants didn’t know we offer subscriptions. I had thought we were doing a satisfactory job of promoting them, but apparently not. This has me concerned. We rely heavily on subscription revenue to pay for everything (art, articles, hosting, staff, stories, etc.), so it’s time to do some marketing. If you are already subscribed, thank you and I hope you’ll excuse me for being a bit more aggressive about promoting subscriptions for a while. I hate this part of the job, but has to done.

If you feel so inclined, you can help us out by telling people about this post. Here is a complete list of the available subscription formats:

      Hi Karen,
      Yes, that’s an issue on Amazon’s end. We’ve talked to them about it, but they haven’t been able to give us an estimate on when it would be working. In the meantime, I highly recommend Weightless Books. They can arrange delivery to any Kindle and will work with international customers.
