A Treasury of Back Issues


It may have escaped your attention over the last fast-paced year or so that each issue of the Inner Circle Writers’ Magazine is available as a back issue.

Just go here and scroll down to find the individual links for any issue that you may have missed:

https://www.clarendonhousebooks.com/inner-circle-magazine-subscribe-pag

Of course, if you’re a subscriber, you are entitled to each issue from the point at which you subscribed — just let me know if you want any issue that you may have missed.

Yes, the back issues are more expensive — they cost the princely sum of £4.00, as opposed to the £2.00 they cost when released (even less if you subscribe). But that’s still a minuscule amount to pay for the vast amount of quality each issue contains.

Here’s a summary of what’s inside each issue, though of course every single edition contains more than I can easily list:
