Book Description

Sept. 2 2011 Writer's Market

The 2012 Writer’s Market details thousands of publishing opportunities for writers, including listings for book publishers, consumer and trade magazines, contests and awards, literary agents, newspapers, playwriting markets, and screenwriting markets. These listings include contact and submission information to help writers get their work published.

Look inside and you’ll also find page after page of all-new editorial material devoted to the craft and business of writing. It’s the most information we’ve ever jammed into one edition! You’ll find insightful interviews and articles, guidelines for finding work, honing your craft, and promoting your writing. You’ll also learn how to navigate the social media landscape, negotiate contracts, and protect your work. And as usual, this edition includes the ever popular "How Much Should I Charge?" 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: WritersDigest.com/upload/images/WritersDigest-Yearbook-11.pdf

Includes an exclusive 60-minute FREE WEBINAR with the staff of Writer’s Digest that will teach you how to begin building your own writing platform today.

"What I appreciate most about Writer’s Market is that it’s impossible to pick up the book, flip through it, and put it down 15 minutes later without at least five, new profitable ideas that I can execute immediately. No other book on my shelf that can inspire this many practical, profitable, career-building ideas in this same amount of time."

1.0 out of 5 stars The last one I'll ever buy Nov. 15 2011
By The Professor - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
One star may actually be generous in light of what Writer's Market used to be in contrast to the abstruse, nearly unusable thing it has become. I was introduced to Writer's Market in 1975, and have made it a mainstay purchase for more than 30 years of freelance success. Over the past few years, however, the format has changed so drastically and negatively that now I only check out a library copy when I absolutely must, and then struggle through the "sea of gray" until I can somehow find the information I am looking for. No category or subject classifications combined with a weak, name-only index make the "new" Writer's Market a readability nightmare. Obviously there was some kind of change in staff or leadership that created this mess, and now is too myopic to admit or correct it.

In a literary culture in which full-time editorial staffs are dwindling and qualified freelancers are becoming harder to find, it would seem that another publisher would take up the banner of quality resources and offer the wealth of information - in a usable interface - that Writer's Digest has opted out of.

3.0 out of 5 stars An unorganized mess Nov. 4 2011
By Scooter - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although this book is filled with good information, it lacks organization.

Example! I recently completed two stories and I needed references for childrens' books. The contents section under "markets" only separated consumer magazines and trade journals. There are 319 pages undeer consumer magazines for me to review to find childrens' magazines.

The general index lists by magazne by name. So, without knowing the names of childrens' magazines, I have a whale of a lot of searching to do to market my stories.

I'm sure there are other categories I will need in the future for other audiences. The lack of organization in this book will make it very difficult. I only wish the editor had taken the time to catagorize the listings in this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Mistakes, Typos and Errors! Oh My!! Sept. 11 2011
By Lynda L. Meyers - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While this book holds some of the most helpful practical advice I've ever read, it is simply chock full of errors. Not just typos, but grammatical errors and structure errors - simple things that I've done myself many times, like thought about saying something one way then deciding to restructure part of a sentence but then not going through afterward and changing tenses or verb forms to match - so the error doesn't show up in a spell check but the sentence no longer makes sense or reads correctly. I am reading this book cover to cover and it's as if someone didn't go through and proof the copy before it went to print - it's very frustrating.

For a book that wants to give me advice about how to write well and get published, that encourages me over and over again to check for errors and make sure my copy is perfect, I find it ironic that this copy is far from it...

Just sayin'....

4.0 out of 5 stars A useful idea / reference book but I don't think it's a game changer Dec 21 2011
By Dom Miliano - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Over the years, I have purchased a few of these Writer's Market guides and have even sold a few stories through leads sleuthed in the various sections. My speciality is automobiles and I find that section in this edition is pretty thin. My technique is to walk the magazine aisles at B&N and zero in on publications that I personally find appealing. I then buy a few over a couple of months so I can get the feel for the writing and the voice. IF I think I can contribute, I pitch an idea.

I have used the book to reach out to a world famous car magazine and have already pitched and sold one story (to be published in late 2011 or early 2012) so the book has paid for itself (or will when I get a check). However, I don't think I'll get too many new leads in my specialty so I'll have to sit and explore new outlets. I am hopeful that I'll find a few (or at least one) and will update this review if I do.

For new writers, this may be a great idea generator but I've been doing this a while and, as I said above, I have other ways to find new magazines.

2.0 out of 5 stars Always Outdated Nov. 14 2011
By Book-Movie-Music Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Having been a full-time freelance business magazine writer for over 30 years, and making a good living at it, I have a vast contact list of magazine editors with whom I stay in touch on a regular basis.
However, I purchase a copy of Writer's Market every year, just in case they have any new listings that might be of interest.
However, I also review the listings for the magazines for which I currently write. In most cases, the names and contact information they have for editors are a year, sometimes two or three years out of date. These people are long gone!!!
They also continue to list magazines that have long since stopped accepting freelance articles.
They also list numerous magazines whose editors virtually never use freelance, but who like to collect names of writers, just in case they ever have a need.
I wrote to the editor of Writers Market about three years ago, and asked them to designate the magazines which are actually open to freelance, and those that just "collect names." They said it was a good idea. However, they never followed up on it.
