I've been writing for a couple of decades now, and have been buying this book annually for almost as long. And I will confess that I'm beginning to find it quite depressing. The book is about the same size as it was 10-15 years ago, but the page count is misleading. Type is larger and white space more abundant, making it very clear that there are FAR fewer markets for our work than existed a decade ago. And a significant percentage of the listings state that they don't accept unsolicited materials. (Often this info is buried in several paragraphs of detailed description of the type of work they publish. In other cases, there is no info BUT "Submit through agent only.")
I realize that this isn't the fault of Writer's Digest Books, but is a reflection of changes in society and reading practices. Still, it's hard to NOT feel frustrated at paying the same price for access to half the number of markets.
1.) A series of articles covering beginning tips as well as first hand interviews with agents provides useful insights for not only the newbie but even the professional writer.
2.) The all important subject index for written materials, photographs and illustrations. This index helps locate relevant markets by subject matter. A cross reference with the age index helps further
refine the market.
3.) Indexes providing addresses of markets (book publishers and which ones only accept agent submissions), art directors, book editors and agents for the submission of materials (written and illustrations)
3.) Conferences and workshop resources
By the end of the book and armed with "writing advice from the trenches" (pg.36) and knowing which publisher requires self addressed envelopes from the relevant index a budding writer and reader of this book will get to realise "As is a tale, so is life: not how long it is, but how good it is, is what matters" (Seneca and quoted at close of J.K.Rowling Harvard Commencement Speech, "The Fringe Benefits of Failure, and the Importance of Imagination" ( harvardmagazine.com
/commencement/the-fringe-benefits-failure-the-importance-imagination), June 2008.
