Slightly Foxed is published four times a year, in early March, June, September and December. Each issue remains current until the next one is published.
Once you reach the checkout you can tell us any renewal information or, if a gift, the name and address of the recipient, any special delivery instructions, and write a personal message to be enclosed with the first issue.
Digital access will begin with the publication of the first issue and will remain valid for the duration of the subscription. You will receive an email or a postcard inside your first issue with instructions for accessing the digital edition within 5 working days of placing your order. Or, if it is a gift subscription, the recipient will receive instructions with their first issue.
Gift subscriptions will usually start with the current issue which can be sent out for a date of your choice, tied up with elegant ribbon and accompanied by a hand-written gift card. Gift subscriptions may also start with the previous or forthcoming issues. If the former, both previous and current issues will be dispatched at once; if the latter, a card will be sent out in advance of the issue being published, or together with the issue for a later date. You can select a delivery date when you reach the checkout.

And so everything about it exudes a degree of excellence that is uncommon in specialist periodical publishing today.’ Caught by the River
‘A rare oasis of quiet, but intelligent literary reflection, free from the spiky cynicism that so often marrs other publications’ The Lady
