What are your writing plans for 2023? Is there a new publication where you want to send your article or devotion? Is there a conference you’d like to attend, virtually or in-person? Do you need a freelance editor or a literary agent for your project?
These past couple of years have taught us that things can change suddenly. The publishing industry is no different. Each year, dozens of agents and editors move from one company to another; others retire, while new editors take their places. Some publications have to shut their doors while others start something new. 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. (Last month I received a proposal addressed to Karen Ball who has not worked for our agency since 2017.)
So what do you do?
The answer is The Christian Writers Market Guide 2023. 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 464 pages in your hand (or search for the information in the online version of the book).
The 2023 edition has been 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.
Ours is the only curated, one-stop shop for the Christian writing industry.
The official publication date is December 14, 2022 (Wednesday), but we’ve worked out a special price with ShopTheWord.com which is 32% off the retail price. The red buy button below will take you there, and they will ship it immediately! It is the best price you will find online. (As of this writing, Amazon.com does not have it discounted. But Christianbook.com has it for 29% off.)
See a sample section from a previous version of the Guide. (The layout is similar, but the information is updated.)
