UK PUBLISHERS

The AA Independent Press Guide started life as a supplement to Acid Angel Magazine, back in 1998.  Since then, it has grown and grown, and now over 2,000 print and internet magazines and publishers are listed from all over the world.  The one thing that hasn’t expanded is the editorial team.  That is, it is still a one-man operation, and it is physically impossible for this one man to keep tabs on everything in this guide.  Whilst I endeavour to keep The AA Independent Press Guide as accurate and up-to-date as possible I just don’t have the time, energy or finance necessary to constantly check and re-check each listing.  Magazines and publishers come and go, just like that.  So, inevitably, some of the magazines and publishers listed here will no longer be operational.  There will also be omissions in this guide: magazines and publishers that aren’t listed.  You can help out, by making me aware of any inaccuracies and omissions in this guide.  Just email me at dee@thunderburst.co.uk  and let me know what you know.  Then I can let everyone else know too!

 

The listings that are highlighted in yellow refer to magazines that will accept electronic submissions, but be aware that there are usually stipulations attached.  Where magazines or publishers are noted in red as folded I have been informed of such by a reliable source.  Where I have stated they are probably folded it is where their noted email and website addresses are defunct or broken and I have not been able to track them down (if you know otherwise, please do let me know).       

 

Please note - donations towards the upkeep and maintenance of this website are welcomed.  If you value the services offered here please make a donation  and help to keep these resources available for everyone.
