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 Rowling provides a concise and entertaining foreword to theYearbook and enthuses, "I now tell unpublished authors everywhere: Writers' and Artists' Handbook--that's what you need."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
