Dear Beloved Believer Reader:

We are writing to you with an announcement of a brand new Believer endeavor! This September, classified advertisements are making a return to the printed page, where they can enjoy a long, healthy, semi-permanent existence on acid-free recycled paper. If you have a message to convey to the world (including but not limited to limericks, love letters, song lyrics, marriage proposals, and under-appreciated tweets) but hadn’t heretofore found a medium worthy of your words, consider this your moment: the Believer is introducing a “Classifieds” section at the inarguably reasonable cost of $1 per word. Ads can be placed by visiting believermag.com/classifieds, calling (415) 642-5609, or emailing customer@believermag.com (use “classified submission” in the subject line). All submissions subject to editorial approval and nit-picking.

There’s more! As a whimsical, celebratory mid-morning twist, we’re awarding anyone who purchases a subscription the chance to claim some of this space gratis. All you have to do is subscribe or renew (or buy a gift subscription) TODAY between the hours of 10 am—1 pm PST and we will reward you with 25 words of ad space in a forthcoming issue. Forward your time-stamped order confirmation and your ad to customer@believermag.com to claim your space.

Subscribe to the Believer and McSweeney’s Quarterly today for just $90!

Yin and Yang! Peanut Butter and Jelly! Baseball and Beer! Woody Allen and Gordon Willis! The Believer and McSweeney’s Quarterly are fantastic as individual subscriptions, but they get even better when you stick them together. The Believer's longform nonfiction has hints of raspberry and oak. The latest issue even comes with an exclusive vinyl 7-inch featuring music by members of Arcade Fire! And then there’s the Quarterly, so rich and smooth with just a hint of chocolate. Sometimes it looks like a book, and sometimes it looks like a human head—but it’s always shockingly beautiful! 

This is the upgrade your bookshelf has been crying out for. Operators are standing by to get you one full year of each amazing publication. Thanks for reading!
