Ask the Editor sponsorships

Ask the Editor is a column appearing at this site, which is emailed to more than 5,000 subscribers of my blog. The sponsor will remain listed indefinitely on published columns (for the month/year of the paid sponsorship).

Sponsors may not be approved if they aren’t a good fit for our newsletters’ audience or appear to conflict with Jane’s mission of serving writers.

Refund and cancellation policy: After the sponsorship has been paid for, approved, and confirmed for placement, it will not be refunded. However, sponsorships can be rescheduled for a later date or transferred to someone else.

Measuring effectiveness

We do not provide any data about the performance of your sponsorship (e.g., how many readers clicked). We suggest using your own tracking links or a link shortener, such as Bitly, to determine engagement.
