4.0 out of 5 stars An excellent buy, 30 Jan. 2004
This review is from: Writers' and Artists' Yearbook 2004 2004: A Directory for Writers, Artists, Playwrights, Writers for Film, Radio and Television, Designers, Illustrators and Photographers (Paperback)
A few years ago I began to write in my spare time, producing short stories that i considered to be below the standard of most i had read in magazines and in books. however, my family, friends, and also my professors said that my stories were good, so i began to write more and more. after a while 'good' reviews turned to 'very good', and 'very good' to 'excellent'. I was pleased, and began to consider publishing (mostly due to my constant lack of money, but also because i wanted my stories to be read by more people). I bought Stephen King's 'On Writing' and in it he recommended a book called 'The Writers Market'. However, as I'm not an American it is of little use to me, so, while wondering what book i could get to point me in the right direction, i saw among the articles of 'Writing Magazine' the mention of a book called 'Writers and Artists Yearbook.'
Suffice to say, it was worth the investment. The book features an amazing wealth of information and contact details relating to newspapers, magazines, fiction, poems, screenplays, television, radio, and also about agents. Scattered in-between these listings are incredibly useful guides and tips for writing for each of these fields, how to get an agent, what is vanity publishing, and much much more. It contains all the information that i wanted before buying it and also much more, leading me to consider forms of writing that i had never even thought of before.
I haven't yet been published, but if my stories are of high enough quality then it is only a matter of time. I recommend this book to ANYONE who has ever even considered writing, part-time or otherwise.
