The American Directory of Writer's Guidelines
Quill Drive Books, November, 2004.
Trade paperback, 786 pages.
This annual collection of writer's guidelines is bigger than ever this year with over 1,500 guidelines. These are the actual guidelines from book and periodical publishers that are printed in the book. The writer's guidelines are listed alphabetically, but the book does provide a topical index in the back which allows the writer to find specialty markets in the topic index and then flip through the book to that publisher's' guidelines. The directory is a pretty amazing tool for writers; this sure beats the days when writers had to send off dozens of self-addressed stamped envelopes to get the guidelines they needed. These days some writer's guidelines are published on the Internet by smart publishers, but not all publishers provide this information. And when they do publish them, the guidelines may be difficult to find. With this book, writers will have thousands of current guidelines at their disposal all in one collection. The American Directory of Writer's Guidelines is a great time saver for freelancers and writers of all genres.
