More than £20,000 raised for staff following administration at online women's magazine

Literary agent Julia Kingsford has launched a crowdfunding campaign to pay the 24 staff as well as freelancers who have worked for online women's magazine the Pool, which has gone into administration. At the time of writing, the campaign had raised nearly £22,000 towards Kingsford's initial £24,000 target.

Kingsford said: "I paid the Pool £3 a month but I would have paid much more to keep it going. Now that's no longer an option I at least want to make sure that the writers who have given me so much joy and taught me so much can be paid at least some of what they're owed."
