Focus Magazines The local magazines for Abergavenny, Crickhowell, Brecon & Talgarth – Events, News and Advertising

We’re 100!

We have an exciting issue of the magazine ahead of us to celebrate and promote local business, and we’d like you to get involved…

It’s all about YOU!

In our October magazine, we’ll be celebrating 100 issues of the Abergavenny Focus and to celebrate we want to shout about our local businesses. We’ll be doing the same in our sister magazine – the Focus for Crickhowell, Brecon and the Usk Valley.

So, for one month only, we’re dedicating our feature editorial pages to you, our advertisers, to give you the opportunity to tell our readers a little more about you and your business. This is a fantastic opportunity to engage readers – your potential customers – at the beginning of the busy Festive season.

If you are advertising in next month’s magazine, you have the opportunity to have some completely free editorial space. In the interest of fairness, consistency and for everything to run smoothly, here’s what we ask of you:

  1. You must be booked in for the October issue of the magazine
  2. Your editorial must be engaging and tell us something different about your business other than being an advert in text form. For example, you might want to tell us about a day in the life of your business or how you came to start up your business, or something about your recent activities or news. We won’t be printing any bullet lists – we need full articles.
  3. You MUST send the editorial to us before 15th September to be considered – after this date and we definitely won’t be able to print it.
  4. Word limit is 300 words maximum and we require at least one high resolution photo to go with the article, sent as a jpeg

We expect this free space to be in high demand and to fill up quickly – once you send us your editorial we will earmark the space for you, but not before. In other words, can’t hold the space without you having sent us an article. We’ll fill the space on a first come first serve basis.

Don’t worry, however, we’ll be putting ALL submissions online throughout the month of October so if you go to the trouble of putting pen to paper (or finger to keyboard) it won’t be in vain.

Please send your submissions to Hannah: as soon as you can!
