2012 Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market

It’s clean. It’s pristine. And it’s mine, all mine. (Well, actually I bought it for my daughter and myself, but that kind of takes away from the mental picture of me sitting in front of my computer rubbing my hands together and laughing sinisterly.)

My daughter is illustrating her first children’s book and would like to make a career of writing and illustrating. I knew this would be a good resource to have in our library.

It is my goal to get my picture books and chapbooks into the marketplace as well, and ordering a copy of the 2012…Market seemed like a good place to start.

Purchase of the book includes a one-year online children’s subscription to WritersMarket.com That plus the almost 400 pages of articles and markets make it a wonderful investment, especially if it leads to work.

How I wish I could order all the 2012…Markets. If I could, they’d include the 2012 Writer’s Market, and those for artists and graphic designers, photographers, poets, novel and short story writers, as well as the …Guide to Literary Agents. (Have I mentioned I’m eclectically-interested?)

If you’re new to freelancing, market guides are an invaluable tool. They list possible homes for your work, some you may never have heard of. They teach you which markets accept unsolicited work, which publish the kind of work you do, what the submission process is…

So, whether you’re a novice or have years of experience, I recommend ordering your market guides today…http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Daps&field-keywords=2012+writer%27s+digest+market&x=0&y=0
