The Arts Council fund critiques for highly rated site writers from editors for leading publishers each month on YouWriteOn.com, including Orion. YouWriteon also offers its own independent initiatives which are not funded by the Arts Council, such as our exciting recent free publishing scheme below. The idea for the YouWriteOn publishing initiative came this year after we independently published Bufflehead Sisters by Patricia J. DeLois, one of our highly rated writers. As a result of her sales success, the author gained a two book deal with Penguin this Summer. The free publishing project, launched during October 2008, is progressing very well with a number of writers already managing high advance orders, including book store placement.YouWriteOn.com Will Publish 5,000 Writers For Free!!Arts Council funded YouWriteOn.com will publish the first 5,000 writers who contact us for Free - Fiction & Non-FictionUPDATE: Christmas Offer now closed, if you wish to be considered for free publishing in 2009 join YouWriteOn and we will alert members when we next offer free publishing in the New Year.

Free Publishing FAQs 1. We will aim to publish books at marketable prices. For example, a 300-page book we recently published called Bufflehead Sisters, which achieved a two book deal with Penguin, was retailed at £6.49 ($12.99 US). This is a guide, book prices will depend on size of books.2. Authors will be able to order copies of their own books. Author discounts on their own books will be advised upon publication as uptake has been very high which should enable us to arrange more advantageous discounts for writers. We will be able to inform writers nearer publication in December.3. Books do not have ISBNs added for free publishing, books which are set up by us for free publishing will be sold through the YouWriteOn site, the UK's most popular Arts Council funded site for new writers. Should you wish to potentially achieve a much higher readership through your book being available to order through the ordering services of major booksellers throughout the UK, US and worldwide, such as Waterstones, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and WH Smith's, then you can do so for £39.99 through our separate partnership with Legend Partnerships (part of Legend Press). Legend Press has been shortlisted for five publishing and business awards over the last 18 months, and in 2008 one of their titles Salt & Honey by Candi Miller was named as one of World Book Day's 'Top Ten Books to Talk About'.
