Inkcap Journal is entirely funded through reader subscriptions. Members receive our weekly news digest, plus occasional bonus content. You can sign up here.

How can I manage my membership?

Most members will be able to manage their account by clicking in the Account button in the top-righthand corner of the screen. Here, you can unsubscribe from emails or cancel your subscription. Please note that unsubscribing from emails doesn't automatically cancel the subscription – it just means that you won't hear from us directly via email.

If you subscribed through Steady, then you have to manage your membership on the Steady website.

Why are Steady memberships more expensive?

We use a platform called Ghost to host Inkcap Journal. For a while, it didn't have the option to let readers choose from tiered subscriptions, so we used Steady. However, Steady charges a 10% cut – so, when Ghost enabled tiered memberships, we began collecting subscriptions there instead.

If you would like to switch your membership from Steady to Ghost, simply cancel your membership and re-subscribe on the Inkcap Journal homepage. If you have an annual membership, we recommend doing this just before your membership expires. Email us at if you have any questions or if you need help.

Do you offer discounted memberships?

Yes, we offer a discounted rate for students, NHS employees and people on a low-income. We're not going to police whether you fall into any of these categories – we count on your honesty!

We are also happy to offer discounted memberships to institutions. If you're interested in taking out an institutional subscription, email to set up a bespoke package.

I have another question.
