3rd Wednesday’s Bad Business Model

LRBubblesmallFrpmtCoverAt 3rd Wednesday Magazine our purpose is to make as little money as possible, which is why we make no effort to sell subscriptions or individual copies (though some people insist on buying them). Each piece we publish in the print magazine has already been published on our website so that contributors can share their published work on their author websites and though social media. The release of each quarterly issue of 3rd Wednesday is accompanied by the simultaneous release of that issue as a free to download PDF.

This the worst possible business model but it seems to be working for the poets, writers and artists who contribute their work to our pages. We strive to expose their work to the widest possible audience and we hope that our business failure is a great success.

3rd Wednesday Winter Issue

smallFrpmtCoverThe first print issue of our 15th year is in the mail to subscribers and contributors. Click the cover image to download the free digital issue in PDF format. We put some nice stuff in this issue. We hope you enjoy it.

This issue marks a substantial change in the way we publish 3rd Wednesday. We look for ways to expose our contributors to an ever wider audience, and beginning with this issue, the first of our 15th year, each of the poetry pieces included was posted on our website with a brief biography of the contributor as the piece was selected.
