Christian Writers' Market Guide 2009

Every year I purchase the Christian Writers' Market Guide, and I'm never disappointed. I refer to it over and over again. This year in one updated and revised volume, I get the latest information on:
416 book publishers (32 new)
654 periodicals (52 new)
96 literary agents
100 new listings in Resources for Writers
226 poetry markets
316 photography markets
25 African-American markets
166 contests (29 new)

Invest in your future by purchasing the Christian Writer's Market Guide. Study it, use it, familiarize yourself with magazines, publishers, contests, and I promise you will see a difference in your growth as a writer. This essential reference tool can be purchased online from the following retailers:
From the publisher:
For 24 years running, the Christian Writers’ Market Guide has remained the most comprehensive, complete, essential, and highly-recommended resource for Christian writers, agents, editors, publishers, publicists, and those teaching writing classes. And it’s the tool for both for beginners and industry veterans. This perennial guide contains a variety of indexes–listed by topic, alphabetical listing of publishing houses and agents, and more–to more than 1,200 markets. Those markets include greeting cards and specialty writing, e-book and traditional book publishing (32 new listings), and periodicals (52 new). Also listed are 96 literary agents, more than 100 new writing resource listings, and 166 contests (29 new).

As with the guide for the last couple years, a CD-Rom is included and contains the text of the book for simple, electronic searches. But the 2009 Guide is handier–a more reader-friendly page count with 100 pages or so of traditional content (like indexes and contest listings) now exclusively on the CD-Rom. Readers will get the same trusted content, though, as in years past. In fact, the latest information on more than 100 editors and publishers, conferences, writers’ groups, and more are not only listed and indexed in the book, but this year, readers will get a code in the book and on the CD-Rom for accessing more updates through the year on author Sally Stuart’s web site, www.stuartmarket.com.

Sally E. Stuart is the author of thirty-six books and has sold more than one thousand articles and columns. Her long-term involvement with the Christian Writers’ Market Guide as well as her marketing columns for the Christian Communicator, Oregon Christian Writers, and The Advanced Christian Writer, make her a sought-after speaker and a leading authority on Christian markets and the business of writing. Stuart is the mother of three and grandmother of eight and lives near Portland, Oregon.
She also has a great blog!

I am etting my copy today. If you've read my blog recently about the "Vortex" in Sedona I've gone through a transformation of sorts and God laid on my heart the thought of a book for Christians. Thanks for always keeping us informed.

I attended a week-long workshop on marketing with Sally Stuart this past summer. She is so organized!
