Special issues of The Dominion are ones where editors and writers put extra effort into covering a single issue in depth. They have a larger print run than regular Dominion issues. Recent special issues have had circulations of around 10,000 to 15,000, meaning that they expand the Co-op's coverage well beyond our regular readership. Special issues often attract new writers and new members. They generally bring in about as much money as they cost to produce, but also represent a significant amount of staff hours.
