WRD is 'the' reading magazine for children aged between 8 and 14 years old. Originally known as tBkmag, but rebranded as WRD in 2013, it has been the-finger-on-the-pulse of what's new and what's happening in children's books for 15 years. It's filled with extracts from the latest books, author Q&As plus loads of assorted features and activities. From 2018 WRD will be published three times, with each issue coinciding with a major event in the 'book year'.
WRD is now an independent publication in its own right. Originally produced for and on behalf of Peters, WRD has, for the last 15 years, been created by the same dedicated team. That team have now taken ownership of the WRD brand and will continue to be behind its production. Future issues will be designed and edited to the same exacting high standards and will include the features readers know and love. With our new lease of life we hope to grow, adding new features and supplement magazines for both older and younger age readers.
WRD is sold by subscription. Historically it has been sold in packs of five magazines to libraries, schools and other organisations. However, from 2018 we are also going to be selling magazine subscriptions direct to WRD readers. We also hope to have it stocked in local independent booksellers.
