The 2020 Christian Writers Market Guide Is Here

The one constant about publishing is change. Each year, dozens of agents and editors move from one company to another and others retire while new editors take their places. Magazines rethink their content focus. New freelance editors hang out their shingles. Sending your query to the wrong person at an agency or a periodical or a publishing house is not the path to success.

So what do you do?

The answer is The Christian Writers Market Guide 2020 Edition. It is packed with more than 1,000 updated entries about publishers, agents, editors, and other industry professionals. You have no idea how many publishing options there are until you hold all 512 pages in your hand (or search the information in the online version of the book).

The 2020 edition is carefully curated to help you advance your writing career. I’ve heard some writers say, “I can get any of this stuff on the internet!” My reply is quite simple: “Do you trust Mr. Google?” We strive to make sure our information is accurate and usable and not left to the algorithms of a search engine.

We have also included throughout the print edition more than $500 worth of coupons for courses in The Christian Writers Institute related to the section of the guide where the coupons are found.

See a sample section from a previous version of the Guide. (The layout is still the same, but the information is updated.)

The official publication date is today, December 16th. We are providing a link to for your convenience. Hopefully you can find a copy of the book at any of your favorite retailers.

Don’t miss the special price for the online edition below.

HUGE Price Reduction of the Online Version – only $9.99 for a full year

For 2020 we have decided to reduce the price of the annual subscription from $25.00 to only $9.99 for the online edition. Every bit of information in the print edition is on the site, but the advantage of the online version is that it is updated regularly throughout the year. Plus you can save your searches for later access. Click the image to the right to sign up today!

The annual price works out to less than 85 cents a month.

    I clicked the link in the email to see a sample page: “See a sample section from a previous version of the Guide. (The layout is still the same, but the information is updated.)” and it’s a broken url. I would love to see a sample. I want to buy the digital version, but always like to see snippets of the product, if possible.

      Debby, the link has been re-established. It should open to a PDF now.

      You can also visit the “Look Inside” feature which is now “live.”

    If I purchased the 2019 edition online, will the 2020 edition be an automatic billing and update? Awesome purchase. Everyone needs this reference book…with updates.

      Make sure you are not confusing the print edition (which is also in ebook form) with the online version.

      The online version is a subscription which once subscribed you have the option to auto-renew each year.

      If you subscribed to the online version in 2019, you will receive an email letting you know that it will auto-renew on the anniversary of your original subscription.

      If you bought the print edition or any of its ebook editions, that will not renew.

      If you go to and click on the menu item for the Market Guide you’ll be taken to the online edition site. There you can log in using your ID and password. If you can access it today, you are already subscribed and will auto-renew as mentioned above.

      Hope that helps!

    I thought that I might navigate
    publishing seas, to make my mark,
    but prideful faults were profligate,
    and I was eaten by my ego-shark.
    I should have gone straight to the source
    for wise counsel and some great advice,
    but I thought, myself, to chart my course,
    and career became the sacrifice.
    It’s a bit late now to try to raise
    the wrack of writing dreams,
    but I can yet come to you in praise
    of a tome that offers you the means
    to ensure my errors don’t betide:
    buy the Christian Writers Market Guide!
