404 Ink publish literary magazines and books. Here, you can subscribe to our weird and wonderful magazine.

Who are we?
We're Heather McDaid & Laura Jones, two publishing professionals in the UK interested in tackling publishing with new eyes - bringing a mix of voices, stories and topics to you in a well-designed package. We hope you'll like to join us for the ride. 404ink.com.

What are we doing?
404 Ink are starting by publishing a literary magazine twice a year, collecting a mix of English and Scottish Gaelic short stories, non-fiction and comics from multiple writers and offering some form of payment on top of the usual subscription, with a view to branching into books down the line. We're looking to do things a little differently, showcase a broad range of voices and topics, and offer well designed and, hopefully, surprising products. 

Why Patreon?
To do all of this, we need support to help bring these voices to you. We not only want to create exciting products, we want to support those who submit even in the smallest way. As with everything, this requires a little money. In return for your support, we'll be giving you well-designed, exciting lit mags.

404 Ink also want to know what you love and don't love about mags. We might even publish based on what you, our Patrons, want. We don't want to be gatekeepers, we want publishing to be a two-way street and what better way to create a collaborative community than through Patreon. (We really like Patreon, can you tell?)

How does it work?
Sign up as a 404 Patron and we will charge your pledged amount twice a year when the new issue of our lit mag is available. We plan for this to happen in November and May of each year.

As a Patron you'll have access to super secret Patron-only posts and previews, as well as some more exciting plans afoot further down the line. You can tell us if they're good ideas or not... 

I'm not based in the UK but would like a print copy. Do you post internationally?

Yes, we can post the magazine internationally, though we'd ask you to pledge at the $20 level to help us cover postage costs. Being such a small operation we can't yet afford to cover postage and packaging outside of the UK. We hope you understand!

And that's all she wrote.
For now. We're at the start of a journey that we hope you'll join us for, and see lots of exciting, new voices along the way. Check out our website, and sign up to our mailing list to keep up to date on what we're doing. You can also email us at [email protected]

We hope you'll press that big orange button and join us for the ride.
