5.0 out of 5 stars Just that bit clearer, 11 April 2009
This review is from: Writer's Market UK 2009 (Paperback)
I made the switch from the A&W Yearbook to the Writer's Market UK last year after sitting down in a bookshop coffee shop with all the guides and yearbooks I could find and going through them all to compare the format that I found most useful.

Perhaps unsurprisingly there wasn't a huge amount of difference between them all, they all had a load of informative articles, good quality listings and free website that i'd probably only get around to using once or twice out of curiosity.

However, for me it's the tiniest of details that makes this writers guide that little bit more convenient to use, namely a little bit of extra separation in the listings. Having finished writing my first novel and researched how to try and sell it, I decided to try and find an agent. Now i know it's a trivial point, but i've written fiction and therefore I want an agent interested in fiction, and what i've found in the A&W and a couple of other guides is that the agent listings can be a little bit confusing and long winded. I am after all not interested in what non-fiction sub genre's a particular agent will consider, especially when i'm wading through 200 listings to try and figure out who to approach first.

So for me the single fact that the Writer's Market UK separates out the fiction and non fiction, makes this writer's guide that tiny bit better and more useable, and why i'll be buying the 2010 edition next instead of any of the others.
