2018 Edition of The Christian Writers Market Guide Released

Today, the 2018 edition of The Christian Writers Market Guide is officially available to order in print and ebook (paperback $22.99, ebook $9.99). Check your favorite bookstore or online retailer for a copy. (We have been told there is a slight delay in shipping the paperback due to a broken binder at the printer. But they will ship as soon as they are available.) Make sure you have a copy of this book in your arsenal!

Over 1,000 entries, including 70 pages of freelance editors, 70 literary agents who work with books intended for the Christian market, designers, publicists, accountants, magazines who are looking for writers, traditional publishers, and independent publishers.

450 pages of information uniquely curated for your use. While some of this may be found with a good search engine, there is not another product on the market that gathers all this information in one place for you. We spend countless hours throughout the year compiling and verifying every entry.

The one drawback of the print and ebook version is that the content quickly changes. That is why we also have made the entire guide available online via a subscription service (click here to see for yourself). The advantage to you is entries are updated throughout the year. As soon as we get new information, or a new entry, or a correction, it is entered in the online edition. There have been literally hundreds of additions, deletions, and changes since the 2017 edition was published. Every change was uploaded to the online version as they were made known to us.

We’ve worked very hard at The Christian Writers Institute to program this site to meet your needs. You can search the entire database and surf listings just like you do with the print or ebook edition. You can save entries for later access, thereby customizing your account to meet your needs. You can even print out your personalized listings for reference. The pricing is set as a sliding scale depending on your needs:

Deadlines Born – Deadlines Made

Deadlines. The bane of every writer’s existence. “A necessary evil.” “My nemesis.” I talked to an author who changed the internal time clock on his computer just so he could have three extra hours, claiming he was writing on the West coast (USA) instead of where his office was (East …
