.
This is the current (2009) edition of an annual (88 so far) guide (WM) put out by Writers Digest Books. If you are serious about getting published or making money with your writing then you need this book.
.
I tried the online adjunct service twice previously but did not find it worth the extra price. This review is for the 2009 book only.
.
This is pretty much the only game in town if you want a fairly complete list of magazines, publishers, or agents to guide your submissions. There are also some listings for newspapers, as well as scripts, and greeting cards.
.
Newspaper submissions are a weak area that needs substantial improvement. The info on syndication is also extremely weak.
.
It appears that a certain core set of listings is in every edition but a substantial number of markets seem to be rotated in/out on a five year or so basis. I would suggest that you buy each years copy and save them for five years before throwing older ones away.
.
Writers Handbook (WH) is a clear second place choice and serious writers should have both.
.
There is also some reference material in this edition of WM that includes a list of professional organisations, and a glossary; as well as a list of contests and awards.
.
It has the usual filler on the basics, and some articles with personal views.
.
I find the basics to be too short to be of significant value to anyone who would need this guidebook. Fortunately, WD wastes less space on this filler in their WM than the WH tome does.
.
It would be nice if all the background and intro info was collected into a separate companion book instead of wasting space in the main guide book each year.

Okay, here's the real deal. This book is a good start, yes. But that's all it is- a start. Information in the book quickly becomes outdated and unreliable. So then you have to pony up another twenty or thirty bucks next year and hope for the best. I'm a person who has bought many copies of the WM for years and still didn't get everything I needed. There's another way! Recently, I found a site that has good listings (for free. i know. i almost passed out), just like the Writers Market, but helps with the rest of the writer's dilemma- mailing, tracking, etc.(which they do charge for, but INEXPENSIVE) It's called WordHustler.com- it's about time someone helped writer's catch up to the Age of Informatioooon!

Very, very helpful.

I would hope this version is better than the 2008 and 2007 versions. Of the former, I sent my document to 5 publishers listed in the book. Three were returned undelivered since the publisher either long ago moved from the address listed in the book or no longer was in existence. One was returned with the statement that the publisher had moved 2-1/2 YEARS AGO! 2 out of 5 publisher deliveries is a % only good in baseball.

Back in 1991, I was studying creative writing under a published author. The one thing we learned was to expect an average 70 rejections no matter if were beginners or seasoned pros. So if you write something, and you send it to be published, and it is rejected...DON'T GIVE UP!!!
With that in mind let me say that this book is one of, if not THE most, respected publications in its field. There are literally over 1000 different publishers of various types of material in this huge book. Publishers of both fiction and nonfiction, publishers of books as well as magazine publishers, complete with addresses and in some cases, phone numbers, email addresses, and websites.
This huge publication houses some of the most respected names in writing, which is another bonus of this book. You get "THE BIG BOYS", plus you get smaller publishers. Publishers of religious material, erotica, poetry, short stories, novels, history, sports, hobbies, and much much more. Another bonus of this fine publication, is that it has tips for how to increase your chances of being published as well as notes some of the legal aspects of the art.
My first two articles I had printed and PAID for, were the result of sending my material to publishers in this handy guide.
So if you're looking for an publication that will greatly increase your chances of getting published, you need this well known publishing tool.

Better organized than Herman's Guide with good use of symbols such as"A" to alert you that only an agent can submit proposals or manuscripts. Shortcomings are, some publishers (Canadians) are included who don't want to be included and who don't want American manuscripts (Gordon Shifford?). There should be more publishers and agents included.

The 2009 Writer's Market is a must have for any freelancer. It gives great information to help you find exactly the publication that might make use of your materials. Magazine, Book (Fiction and Non), Poetry, Photography, etc. Writer's Market has it all. One tip, make sure you check (on the internet or from a recent physical copy of publication) that the entry you are using still contains the correct information as to who is the Editor in Chief, etc. before you send any queries.
