Publishers description (via Writer’s Digest Shop).
The 2014 Writer’s Market details thousands of publishing opportunities for writers, including listings for book publishers, consumer and trade magazines, contests and awards, and literary agents. These listings include contact and submission information to help writers get their work published. It also incorporates high profile author interviews with vital insider information and a completely updated “How Much Should I Charge?” rate chart, too. Look inside and you’ll find page after page of all-new editorial material devoted to the business of writing. It’s the most information we’ve ever jammed into one edition! You’ll find advice on pitching agents and editors, finding money for your writing in unexpected places, and promoting your writing. Plus, you’ll learn how to navigate the social media landscape, negotiate contracts, and protect your work. And as usual, this edition includes the ever-popular pay rate chart. You also gain access to:
- Lists of professional writing organizations
- Sample query letters
- A free digital download of Writer’s Yearbook featuring the 100 Best Markets Includes a self-publishing checklist, submission tracker, family tree of the major book publishers, and helpful charts
In just a few days, I’ve found eight small presses to pitch my manuscript to, and potential markets for several recently completed essays. I haven’t even gotten to the articles, sample queries, and checklists yet. This book is a must-have for any serious writer.
