Outskirts Press authors set their own retail price and discount, and therefore determine their own profitability since they receive 100% of the profit of the book. Outskirts Press is actively involved with the Publishers Marketing Association, the Small Publishers Association of North America, the Florida Writers Association, and the Colorado Independent Publishers Association. Every year Outskirts Press publishes the Writer’s Digest Writing Competition Collection.
