A New-Look New Escapologist? Have Your Say!


We might well take the magazine a new direction in 2016.

I’m not completely sure how it will look yet but we’re discussing three possible options:

1. We’ll leave the magazine as it is. If people are attached to it, why meddle?

2. We’ll start producing a more conventional magazine with regular columns, humour pages, letters to the editor, etc.

3. We’ll start producing an online monthly concern. For a quid a month you’d get a substantial monthly essay and the occasional bonus. There might be a higher bracket where you can also get access to the archive, and perhaps a quarterly podcast. We’d also collect the best of this stuff into a printed annual collection if there’s enough interest.

So what do you think? We launched a survey to members of the mailing list, but blog readers can have a say too. Complete this tiny questionnaire to let us know your thoughts.
