Ad Guidelines (Tiers 1 and 2)

Ads can be image or text

  • Images can vary in size, but a good rule of thumb is approximately 540 x 320, but we can work with slightly different dimensions a well. If in doubt, contact us!
  • Text only ads should be about 10 lines (about 60 characters each). We will adjust smaller amounts of text to larger font size to stand out.
  • All ads must be related to writing in some way (including blogging, publishing, submitting writing etc.)
