Around 150 contractors (as of July 2007) throughout the United States are used to assist authors with production issues such as editing, formatting, illustrations and cover design.
In 2004, Outskirts Press and F&W Publications reached a sponsorship agreement whereby Outskirts Press would publish the annual Writer’s Digest Writing Competition Collection. As of 2008[update] the arrangement continued for the fifth year running.
The company was founded by an author, Brent Sampson, as a result of his frustration in trying to get his own work published, and incorporated in 2003. Between 2004 and 2007 revenue rose rapidly, from $95,000 to $3.2 million and in 2007 the Denver Business Journal recognised it as the third fastest-growing privately held company in the state.
