Product Description

Amazon Review

The Writers' and Artists' Handbook is the king of reference guides for anyone remotely interested in the media. Now in its 93rd edition (and year), the book has been substantially revised to take on board, among other things, the rapid changes in electronic publishing. It now features very useful sections on the Internet and much appreciated advice to writers on "how to get the best out of your PC". The section on children's writing has also expanded, reflecting the increased kudos attached to this area of publishing, following the success in particular of Philip Pullman's Northern Lights and J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter series. Rowling provides a concise and entertaining foreword to theYearbook and enthuses, "I now tell unpublished authors everywhere: Writers' and Artists' Handbook--that's what you need." Could there a better endorsement than this?

Rowling apart, the Yearbook is everything the reader requires in a reference guide. It's concise, comprehensive and--all importantly--easy-to-use. The directory listings are broken up by useful commentaries geared to each market; these include international listings on newspapers/magazines, book publishers, children's publishing, poetry, literary agents, theatre producers, art agents/commercial studios, television, film, radio and new material on creative writing courses. The sections are cross-referenced and some are helpfully indexed by subject. Furthermore the book supplies information on copyright, tax, finance and even the dole. It would be hard to recommend a better reference guide than the Writers' and Artists' Handbook 2000. It is an essential reference source for anyone interested in the media.--Aruna Vasudevan

4.0 out of 5 stars An essential tool for freelancers 4 Feb 2000
I get the Writers' and Artists' Yearbook every year. I'm addicted to it! And as a children's author and freelance writer and editor I couldn't be without it. It really is all there - information, tips, advice, resources. In particular the journalists' calendar is a great help in planning relevant articles. I'm also very grateful for the proof correction marks. I teach editing courses and encourage all my students to get this book so that they have a ready reference, plus information about potential clients. So why only four stars? I'm based in Europe so unfortunately some of the information e.g. libel laws, lists of societies and prizes, isn't relevant outside the UK. However, there's enough material that is to make it worth buying.

5.0 out of 5 stars Invaluable! 23 Jun 2000
By A Customer - Published on
A superb, invaluable book for all writers. Whether you are writing for the first time or looking for information on publishing something new - this is the book you need. EVERYTHING is in it! Harry Potter's author, J.K. Rowling used this book to advise her on presentation of her manuscript and to help her choose who to send it off to. Look where it got her! Covers all publishers of Newspapers, Magazines, Children's Books, Fiction, Non-Fiction, T.V. Radio and more. Also gives advice on agents, copyright, illustration etc. The true BIBLE of the publishing/writing world. A must for all 1st-timers.
