This guide for writers covers both the craft and skill of writing, and essential business aspects such as agents, negotiation, and contracts. The information presented here was culled from more than 80 years of the Writers Digest's Writer's Market series of books. After a section on getting started and business issues, tabbed sections cover fiction, nonfiction, children's writing, and poetry. The brief articles in each section cover the craft and business of each genre. The book's wire-ring binding is attached to a hard cover by a thin layer of paper that was already starting to tear on this reviewer's copy.
