CFBA Tour - Christian Writers' Market Guide 2007

This week we have a special feature for the Christian Fiction Blog Alliance: A work that is non-fiction, one that none of us have read from cover to cover...

If you are interested in any kind of writing for the Christian market, then Sally Stuart's guide is it. It not only has updated listings on publishers for all sorts of projects, it is a great resource for writers with lists of different places for writers to find advice and help. I spent time studying the 2005 version while first developing a desire to write, and it encouraged me that I could, maybe someday, be a published writer (in some form or another).

For more than twenty years, the Christian Writers’ Market Guide has offered indispensable help to Christian writers. This year, for the first time, this valuable resource comes with a CD-ROM of the full text, so you can search with ease for topics, publishers, and other specific names.

The 2007 edition also includes up-to-date listings of more than 1,200 markets for books, articles, stories, poetry, and greeting cards, including information on forty new book publishers, eighty-three new periodicals, and thirty-four new literary agents. Perfect for writers in every phase, this is the resource to get noticed–and get published.

It contains listings for: 695 periodicals, 228 poetry markets, 355 book publishers, 133 online publications, 29 print-on-demand publishers, 1185 markets for the written word, 321 photography markets, 31 e-book publishers, 122 foriegn markets, 112 literary agents,and 59 newspapers.

It also gives you comprehensive lists of contests, writers groups and conferences, search engines, pay rates and submission guidelines, editorial services and websites.

Christian Writers’ Market Guide is a "must have' for any serious Christian writer that is looking to get published!
