Writer’s Market 2019: The Most Trusted Guide to Getting Published

We rated this book:


If a writer or aspiring writer could only own one book, it must be the latest edition of Writer’s Market. The surest way to delay or ruin a writing career is to make mistakes in the submission process — approaching the wrong person or doing it too soon or in the wrong way. This book is a treasure trove of information for all levels of writers that will help them avoid those pitfalls. The opening section is about finding work including a query letter clinic with excellent examples of good and bad letters. The second section covers managing work including information on how much to charge.

The real meat of the book is the market section with listings of literary agents, book publishers, consumer magazines, and trade journals. Each listing gives all sorts of information such as what kinds of work are accepted, addresses, phone and fax numbers, how to submit, and more. There are also sections for playwrights, screenwriters, and contests and awards. The resources section lists professional organizations and has an excellent glossary. This is followed by a book publisher index arranged by subject and a general index. Every writer or aspiring writer needs this book.
