Writers' and Artists Yearbook 2004


A directory for writers, artists, playwrights, writers for film, radio and television, designers, illustrators and photographers

The 97th edition of the Writers' and Artists' Yearbook is the bestselling guide to markets in all areas of the media. It has been completely revised, redesigned and updated, with a foreword by Eoin Colfer, author of Artemis Fowl, who says: 'every possible scrap of information needed by an upcoming or established writer is included'.

New articles in this edition cover Ghostwriting, Distribution and Adaptation.  There are also pieces on Writing for Newspapers, Writing for Magazines, Submitting Material, the Do's and Don'ts of Approaching a Publisher (by Michael Legat, the author of WritersServices' Factsheets), Writing and the Children's Book Market, Getting Poetry Published, How to get an Agent, the UK and US Copyright Laws and much more.

The wealth of listings are the most attractive feature of the book.  These include include newspapers and magazines, book publishers and literary agents, picture agencies and festivals.

'A must for established and aspiring writers.'

' I've know writers who would lend their wives or husbands before lending their thumbed copy of the WAYB.  Don't blame them.  You need your own copy.'
