The 2019 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 place. Magazines rethink their content focus. New freelance editors hang out their shingles. We have even had a major change in personnel in our own agency. Sending your query to the wrong person at an agency or a publisher is not the path to success.

So what do you do?

The answer is The Christian Writers Market Guide 2019 Edition. It is packed with over 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 480 pages in your hand.

The 2019 edition is carefully curated to help you advance your writing career.

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