Real Pants is happening. Happen with it.

We have two goals that selling ads will help us achieve:

  1. to fund the site and pay contributors
  2. to spotlight what matters in literature and beyond

Advertising on Real Pants allows you to target an engaged, active audience of readers, writers, and literature enthusiasts. In our first year, we averaged 25,000 pageviews/month.
