About – the August Edition of Electric Press

Submissions for the August Edition of Electric Press are now closed.

We do still have one page/two half pages, of space available for advertising/promotion.

As it is the final space in the magazine, we are offering it at ‘half-price’, (that’s just £50:00 for the full page, £25.00 per half page), to anyone who books by Friday, (19th July).

The next edition of Electric Press is scheduled for release on Wednesday the 31st/ Thursday 1st August.

It is possible this Edition of Electric Press may be published a little earlier.

To be kept informed of publication dates, submission calls, extra and exclusive interim content, why not ‘follow’ this, the Electric Press blog by email. (See the large black ‘follow’ button on the top right of this page.)

The UK arm of the $35bn Elliott Management hedge fund plans to install James Daunt, the Waterstones boss, in New York as chief executive of both chains, with the two brands retained and operated separately.
