New Co-op Ad Helps Self-Publishing Authors Reach 30,000 Readers of Boston Review

Outskirts Press has recently introduced a new marketing option that allows authors to reach the growing intellectual market of 30,000 Boston Review readers with a full-color ad for their books at an affordable rate.

Boston Review MagazineBoston Review is a prestigious magazine that describes itself as “committed to public reason and literary imagination.” It is a magazine of ideas and it covers a lot of ground — book reviews, poetry, fiction, film, criticism and politics — with five important premises tying it all together editorially: Democracy depends on public discussion; Sometimes understanding means going deep; Vast inequalities are unjust; The human imagination breaks free from neat political categories; Powerful images are worth more than piles of words.

By putting politics and poetry on the same page, Boston Review anticipates a world that is at once more democratic and more imaginative than our own. They take their designation as a magazine of political, cultural, and literary ideas seriously, and the intellectual range of their audience distinguishes them from any political journal or literary quarterly. So too does their seriousness of purpose set them apart from other general-interest magazines. They therefore offer the perfect audience for authors of thoughtful new fiction and nonfiction books.

“For our authors to be able to reach this influential audience with a full-color ad for such a minimal cost gives us great pleasure,” said Outskirts Press Director of Author Support Kelly Schuknecht, “because we can now provide our authors with one more important venue through which they can promote their books and help increase their sales.”

With this co-op marketing option each full-color ad for an author’s book in Boston Review occupies a 2” by 2.5” space that includes a full color image of the book’s cover, an abbreviated synopsis, the ISBN, its retail price and all necessary retail and wholesale ordering information. The full page ad includes eleven other Outskirts Press titles.

Boston Review is published six times a year and reservations for Outskirts Press co-op ads are taken on a first come, first served basis. For more information or to reserve your space now, visit
