Publishers Weekly Advertising Program

How it Works

Twice a year, IBPA buys the cover, plus several full pages within a single edition of Publishers Weekly and offers its members the opportunity to display their titles in a cooperative ad. The Publishers Weekly Advertising Program lowers the price of advertising to PW’s 17,000+ print magazine subscribers. With a pass-along rate of 4 readers per issue, Publishers Weekly is read by over 68,000 booksellers, publishers, public and academic librarians, wholesalers, distributors, agents, and writers. (See a sample ad here.)
