The essential guide for freelance writers, now completely updated and revised.
The Canadian Writer's Market is the authority on who publishes what and how best to bring your work to their attention. It offers practical advice on everything from manuscript preparation to copyright law, from information on pay rates to writers' workshops. This useful guide also includes comprehensive and up-to-date listings for: consumer magazines; literary and scholarly journals; trade, business, and professional publications; daily newspapers; book publishers; literary agents; awards, competitions, and grants; writers' organizations and support agencies; writers' workshops, courses, and retreats.
Heidi Waechtler is a freelance editor working in Toronto.
• "It has been said that to be a freelance writer in Canada is a good way to starve to death slowly. The Canadian Writer's Market has long been an effective tool to help freelancers fend off such a nasty fate. . . . With such a concise resource, writers trying to sell (or place) just about any competent piece of work will likely find not only a toehold, but quite possibly a leg up to publication." -- Quill and Quire
