Graffiti is WV’s largest independent publication. Each month, thousands of copies are distributed to scores of locations throughout the state, and to adjoining areas of Virginia, Ohio and Kentucky. From the State House in Charleston to the spas in Berkeley Springs, Graffiti is the state’s most widely-read monthly publication - and the most affordable way to get your message to a readership that spans the Mountain State.
Graffiti draws on the talents of some of West Virginia’s finest writers who bring a unique perspective to the paper’s provocative features as well as the regular columns. Articles and events covered first in Graffiti are often picked up by the local press as well as national newspapers and magazines including The New York Post, Ann Landers and Entertainment Weekly. Graffiti’s writers have won numerous awards from the West Virginia Division of Tourism for their reporting. Graffiti has long been a must-read for lawyers and the State House crowd as well as musicians and artists, all of whom look to Graffiti for news, revues and area happenings.
Across the country, alternative papers like Graffiti (the Chicago Reader, Creative Loafing, etc.) are attracting national and international contracts and major media attention. Unlike direct mail, people pick up Graffiti because they WANT to read it - and do so on a regular basis. Unlike daily papers, an ad in Graffiti is out there for an entire month as readers hang on to each issue to refer to Graffiti’s extensive calendar of events.
