Book and Movie Lovers: Win a Trip!


Drawing this Friday, May 31st!


ForeWord Reviews, a journal and website devoted to reviewing alternative and independently published books is giving away two trips to celebrate its

15th birthday this year!


ForeWord will give away tickets to two premier events in its hometown of

Traverse City, Michigan: The Traverse City Film Festival and the

National Writers Series during Book Expo America.


ForeWord Reviews will give away trips to the 2013 Traverse City Film 

Festival this summer and to one of the National Writers Series 

events in the fall. The Film Festival, launched by Academy Award winning

documentary maker Michael Moore in 2005, features a variety of great 

independent movies and documentaries all shown in one of the nation’s

most beautiful, hip, small cities. The National Writers Series attracts major authors to Traverse City throughout the year.


Both trips include flights, accommodations, and a special event at 

ForeWord Reviews’ offices at The BOX, a refurbished cigar box factory.


It’s fitting that this small magazine with a big heart for small presses and

independent publishers would want to celebrate its Quinceañera (Look it up. It’s a 15th birthday celebration in Latin America!) in its hometown. 


The Traverse City area often receives national media attention for its beaches, food, entertainment and livability═ż so it comes as no surprise that the 

Traverse City Film Festival, the National Writers Series, and 

ForeWord Reviews all call this Lake Michigan-fronted gem their home.


Now through May 30, 2013, ForeWord Reviews readers will be able to 

register to win at


Winners will be announced June 1 at BookExpo America, on the ForeWord Reviews website and in social media. (Eligibility details can be found at the website).
