Self-Publishing Co-Op Advertising


ForeWord Magazine is a bi-monthly journal that is delivered to librarians, booksellers, agents, and other industry professionals.Additionally, ForeWord is sent directly to small press buyers at the chains (B&N, Borders, Chapters, Books-A-Million, etc). ABA’s Booksense also requests 500 copies of each issue for delivery direct to their members. ForeWord Magazine also is placed in the hands of agents and editors at larger houses, who may be looking for leads to bring into their fold from the small press sector. All told, the ForeWord circulation is approximately 85% librarians, 12% bookstores, and 3% publishing professionals.Now you can reach this influential readership with a Co-Op advertisement. Outskirts Press handles all the details for its authors.
