1998 Writers Market 4,200 Places to Sell What You Write
ISBN 0898797926 / 9780898797923 / 0-89879-792-6Find This Book
This freelance writer's bible, available for the first time in paperback, weighs in at more than 1,000 pages. For novices, there are chapters on query writing, negotiating contracts, and the like, as well as firsthand reports from various publishing professionals. The bulk of the book comprises comprehensive listings for more than 4,200 places to sell your words, from book publishers (more than 1,250) to magazines (more than 2,000) to greeting-card companies, script buyers, writing contests, and a handful of online markets. The entries vary in thoroughness (depending on how helpful a specific publisher was), but most are quite complete, including a description of the publishing company or publication, contact names, and tips from the editors on how best to get your pen in the door. The tips range from the truly useful to the nearly useless ("Ride a motorcycle and be able to construct a readable sentence!" recommend the folks at CC Motorcycle Magazine). This is an invaluable resource: all the work that goes into requesting writer's guidelines and trying to figure out how best to get published somewhere can be put toward, well, writing. The 1998 Writer's Market is also available in CD-ROM (includes a handy submission tracker) and as a book/CD-ROM package. [via]
