Completely revised and updated for this new edition, The Canadian Writer’s Market is the authority on who publishes what, and how best to bring your work to their attention.
Success in getting your writing published depends on knowing where you are most likely to sell your work, who to approach and how, and where to find professional and financial assistance. In the ever-changing and increasingly competitive world of Canadian publishing, this is not as easy as it might sound. The indispensable tool for keeping up is The Canadian Writer’s Market, acclaimed coast to coast for more than 25 years as the most important reference book for writers, next to a dictionary and thesaurus. It includes the most comprehensive and up-to-date listings available for:
• consumer magazines
• literary and scholarly journals
• trade, business, and professional publications
• daily newspapers
• book publishers.
The Canadian Writer’s Market also includes listings for literary agents, awards, competitions, and grants, and offers practical advice on all aspects of manuscript preparation and marketing. It also contains useful background information on the thorny issues of income tax for the freelancer and copyright and libel law.
About the author
“It has been said that to be a freelance writer in Canada is a good way to starve to death slowly. The Canadian Writer’s Market has long been an effective tool to help freelancers fend off such a nasty fate.…With such a concise resource, writers trying to sell (or place) just about any competent piece of work will likely find not only a toehold, but quite possibly a leg up to publication.”
