Our book reviews and author features bring you up to date with the best writers in town. You can keep track of literary events across the UK, as well as writers’ groups and international retreats.

All that’s left to say is dive in and see what you can find. We’ve also got books for sale in our shop and the authors would just love to pocket your pennies - it means they can afford to keep writing! - so maybe take a peek and see what takes your fancy.

We Want Your Books Listed on Our Website


Whether you're an established author or have recently released your first text into the wild, wild literary world, we want to add your book to our collection.

Writing Times currently sells tens of publications and we're looking to add more to our collection. Whatever you chosen genre, we'll list your title at the price you want and, for an extra charge, we can write a book review and will even throw in an author feature, that's an interview conducted and copied up by one of our resident writers, allowing your readers to get to know the mind behind the words.

Right now for authors not yet in our shop, we're offering a one-time charge of £5.00 for a single book listing, and £10.00 for three books. Fill in our online book submission form here.

Clients feedback - "The copywriting services you provided were of a high standard. My only regret is that I didn't come to you sooner. But better late than never. I recommend anyone who runs a business to contact writing times today." – Jacob Newham, USA
