An Amorist Christmas Stocking

IMG_9791.JPG#asset:1061

Wondering what's happened to your December issue? The Amorist is sorry to announce she’s having to cease print publication of her cherished magazine. She thought she’d wrestled a new backer onto her chaise longue, but alas it was not to be. Subscribers are being offered the chance to transfer their subscription to The Oldie (the Amorist’s second favourite publication).

But it’s not all tragic news. The Amorist team will be updating the website, posting fresh articles and reviews by our favourite authors and the newsletter will go out as usual. All sensible ideas on the Amorist’s way forward are welcome. (Please send to editorial@theamorist.co.uk.) She’s already considered selling her art director’s sex tape to the Sun and flogging her deputy’s used stockings on eBay.
