Dog-Ear

We brought Dog-Ear to life because we realised that the long, thin, bookmark format encourages – rather than intimidates – aspiring writers and illustrators. It also keeps print costs down and makes distribution a doddle (you can find the magazine in libraries and bookshops across Britain and beyond).

After launching the magazine in other languages, setting up a monthly book recommendation service, and starting to sell small-press titles, we decided to establish Dog-Ear Ventures CIC, a Community Interest Company.

That means we have committed, officially, to re-invest all of our profits back into Dog-Ear, funding efforts to support the reading, writing, and bookselling community of the UK. Plans for the future include crowdfunding campaigns, interactive drawing and writings events, and even lesson plans for schools.

So far, the project has recieved praise in publications such as Creative Review, It’s Nice That, and Monocle. Supporters and financial backers include high-profile authors such as Margaret Atwood.

Dog-Ear is more than a magazine – it’s a social-good project that believes in the power of playful creativity.

We hope to see your submission at dogear.co.uk very soon.

“In today’s art world just about anything can become a platform for curated work – but come on, would you have ever thought to turn a bookmark into a magazine? This micro-mag folds out into a readable page and folds up into a nifty bookmark. It’s a brilliantly innovative format.”

Charlotte Simmonds, It’s Nice That
