Creating A Magazine
Wolfian Press' in-house magazines are published as full-colour A4 coffee table books, for print, or are available on Kindle, iTunes and Epub from online distributors. PDF copies are only available from us, and can be bought singly or by subscription. Please email email@example.com for details or to subscribe.
This style of magazine might not suit your intended publication, and the pros and cons should be weighed up.
Pros - Durable product - anywhere you sell to will often keep it about for months; Quality printing, feel and look; Easy to translate the print version into the ebook version, no need for lengthy reformatting or messy workarounds
Cons - High individual unit price; Free copies to give out or promote it will cost you a lot more; No immediate stock from the printer unless you purchase it yourself
If you prefer to publish a magazine in a more traditional light-paper and paper-cover format, then Wolfian Press will create your manuscriipt and liaise with reputable printers we have worked with in the past and whose products meet our high standards. Please Note that low unit costs in traditional magazine printing come from the larger order, so you will only save most vis-a-vis the coffee table format if you commit to pay the printer for 200, or 500 units. Printing of a traditional style magazine is also not available for single copies, and all printers come with a minimum accepted order, usually 50, so if you run out after your initial purchase, you will have to buy another minimum order, rather than top your stock off ad hoc.
Whilst many publications continue to be dual-format in both print and ebook versions, it is perfectly acceptable to decide to publish solely as an emagazine (or ezine). With no worries about the correct format for print, the focus can be on marketing the ebook-only version to the best of its capability. The Wolfian Press creates DRM-free master copies which are then uploaded to the distributors; these master copies can be used to send to reviewers, bloggers and potential sales influencers free of charge. The e-magazines can then be sold on Kindle, iBooks, Kobo, Barnes & Noble and through Smashwords.

Wolfian Press Review
The Wolfian Press Review is an annual publication celebrating some of the best authors and contributors the Wolfian Press has worked with in recent years. Due to size constraints, we are unable to invite everyone whose work we have admired to submit to it, but hope that as it establishes itself over the coming years the Wolfian Press Review will be able to feature content by the vast majority of people whose work we have been proud to have published.
