Publishing Fankle Magazine   Leave a comment

One of the recent things Dumfries and Galloway Writers’ Group has been doing is the publication of The Fankle magazine. To date five Fankles have been released and number six is closed for submissions, with its release due shortly.

The Fankle is a great wee booklet of short stories and poems, not just from writers within the Group, but also from other Writing Groups in the region. Sales of the magazine have been increasing to the point where the last edition sold out, and the hope is that issue six will have similar success.

The problem is that despite the increasing sales, the magazine (really an A4 piece of paper printed on both sides and folded into a booklet by some trickery of origami) has been losing money. So the Group is discussing whtehr there should be a seventh Fankle issued, or indeed, if there is, whether it needs financial contributions from other sources.
