2002 Writer's Market Online
Writer's Digest Books, August, 2001.
Paperback, 1112 pages.
Not only does the 2002 Writer's Market Online provide a thorough listing of the paying markets for writers, this version also includes a subscription to writersmarket.com, the online edition of the directory. The combination works well, because the online edition helps keep writers up to date with news markets, ceased publications and changes in editor and publisher staff positions. The online edition includes databases of freelance markets, agents, book publishers, contests, awards, and screenplay markets. The online service also provides a Market Watch feature which includes writing-related news, ask the agent, an online encyclopedia and an online submissions tracker. The website also allows you to view changes to the database, which is an excellent feature. The site is very user friendly and simple to use. The book itself includes all the goodies that you would expect: how-to articles, interviews with editors and experts and the popular market sections which include listings for book publishers, magazines, greeting-card publishers, script buyers and other market opportunities for writers.
Writers who are looking for a way to discover and follow markets, as well as track their submissions will find plenty of value here. By including both a comprehensive book and an online service featuring market updates and agent and market databases, the 2002 Writer's Market Online is the best combination of print and online market resources money can buy. The Writer's Market Online is a necessity for any writer.
