Outskirts Press to Publish 2009 Writer's Digest Contest Collection

For the fifth year in a row, Outskirts Press, Inc. and F+W Media, Inc. are teaming up for the Writer's Digest Annual Writing Competition. The companies jointly announced today that Outskirts Press will sponsor and publish the printed anthology for the 78th Annual Writer's Digest's Writing Competition, one of the nation's oldest and most respected contests.

"Writer's Digest expects the same from its publishing partner as it does from contest hopefuls--you've got to be the best," states Outskirts Press CEO Brent Sampson. "That's why we are so excited and honored to have been selected to publish this important collection for the fifth year in a row."

The collection will include the Grand Prize manuscript, the First Place manuscript in each category, and the names of the top 100 winners in each category. The prestigious annual competition, which drew 16,000 entries in 2007, honors writers in everything from short stories to screenplays. When published in November 2009, the collection will benefit from the same level of attention and wholesale distribution bestowed upon all Outskirts Press Diamond Book Publishing packages, with worldwide availability via Ingram and Baker & Taylor wholesalers, along with automatic online availability through Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and elsewhere.

Copies of this year's 77th Annual Writing Competition Collection, also published by Outskirts Press, become available in November 2008.
