Denver, CO / Cincinnati, OH (PRWEB) January 20, 2005
ÂWriterÂs Digest magazine sponsors one of the oldest, most prestigious annual writing competitions in the country,Â says WriterÂs Digest publisher Colleen Cannon. ÂWinning this competition can help launch a writerÂs career.Â
Ms. Cannon believes the magazineÂs partnership with Outskirts Press will help WriterÂs Digest and its competition winners gain even more recognition. ÂThe 2005 Compilation published by Outskirts Press will showcase our competition winners in a more significant way than ever before,Â she says. ÂBroader distribution opportunities and aggressive marketing of the compilation will increase visibility of the WriterÂs Digest brand in the publishing community.Â
ÂOutskirts Press is excited to be publishing the 2005 compilation,Â states Outskirts Press CEO Brent Sampson. ÂNot only is WriterÂs Digest the premier writing magazine, but the 2005 publication enables us to demonstrate the advantages of custom publishing to our target audience Â writers.Â
Such advantages as single ISBN assignment and distribution via Ingram, Amazon, and elsewhere may target individual authors, but this 1-year partnership also demonstrates custom publishingÂs business-to-business applicability. In addition to the 2005 publication and year-long promotion and marketing commitments via print and web, the deal also includes the retroactive publishing of WriterÂs DigestÂs 2004 compilation.
States Mr. Sampson: ÂBy utilizing Outskirts Press services for previous contests, F & W Publications can re-open additional revenue streams and promotional opportunities. The republication of archived annual compilations requires no warehouse space, no inventory management, and zero fulfillment services. ItÂs a win for WriterÂs Digest, plus previous contest winners will never be out of print again.Â
