The Wordsmith Journal...The Premier Magazine for Lovers of the Written Word
I first approached the magazine as an author longing to get the word out about my book, The Visionary which was scheduled to release in November.
Soon after, I was asked to join the TWJ staff as an Ad Sales Director and Accounts Manager and offered partnership in the magazine.
In January (2012) the other partners of the magazine had opportunities arise and obligations to fulfill, so I acquired full ownership. As with any new business, transition can be challenging but we’ve managed to hang on and now The Wordsmith Journal is thriving and quickly becoming known as the premier magazine for lovers of the written word.
We’ve partnered with another Christian site to cross promote, and brought in a new sponsor, a social media expert, a review coordinator, and professional review staff. In February, the monthly magazine became available on Kindle and Nook for $0.99 (only because we can’t list it for free!). TWJ is available as a free read through ISSUU.com and as a downloadable pdf on our website
Once all current and past issues are up in these venues, the next goal will be The Wordsmith Journal Reviews - a pdf containing the cover/blurb/reviews only - that will be offered as a free pdf to libraries and retailers on our contact lists as well as a free download on the site.

For Authors and Publishers….
