Publishers Weekly, familiarly known in the book world as PW and "the bible of the book business," is a weekly news magazine focused on the international book publishing business running for over 140 years. It offers feature articles and news on all aspects of the book business, bestsellers lists in a number of categories, and industry statistics, but its best known service is pre-publication book reviews, publishing some 8,000 per year.

Publishers Weekly is currently looking for reviewers for all types of fiction (including graphic novels) and non-fiction, in both digital and physical formats, and for both traditionally published and self-published books. PW pays an honorarium per review. Applicants of color and LGTBQ backgrounds are highly encouraged to apply.
