Outskirts Press reviews by published debut poetry book author Jennaration.

Poetry author published by Outskirts Press.

My author representative was very patient during the entire process and never failed to answer my questions thoroughly and to the best of their knowledge along with recommendations that helped bring my vision to life. I absolutely loved the experience and definitely plan on using their services again!

Outskirts Press reviews by published award-winning poetry author David Bernstein.

Author of 6 award-winning books published by Outskirts Press.

From the beginning, and throughout the process of publishing my first book, I felt that I was in the hands of a pro. My author representative always took the time to answer my questions in detail and swiftly. If she didn’t have 100% confidence, she researched the question and got back to me. I was very pleased with her and I am also thankful that I was paired with her as an author rep.
