Praise For The Canadian Writer's Market, 19th Edition

 • "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
