It contains over 1,300 listings, including revised and updated listings from the 2018 edition, and over 400 brand new entries. • 84 pages of literary agent listings – that’s nearly as much as the Writer’s Market (53 pages) and the Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook (39 pages) combined! • 100 pages of book publisher listings, compared to just 92 pages in the Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook. • 90 pages of magazine listings – over 35% more than the 62 pages in the Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook. All in a book that is 40% cheaper than the Writer’s Market ($29.99 RRP), and more than 50% cheaper than the Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook (£25.00 RRP). Subject indexes for each area provide easy access to the markets you need, with specific lists for everything from romance publishers, to poetry magazines, to literary agents interested in thrillers. International markets become more accessible than ever, with listings that cover both the main publishing centres of New York and London, as well as markets in other English speaking countries. With more and more agents, publishers, and magazines accepting submissions online, this international outlook is now more important than ever. There are no adverts, no advertorials, and no obscure listings padding out hundreds of pages. By including only what’s important to writers – contact details for literary agents, publishers, and magazines – this directory is able to provide more listings than its competitors, at a substantially lower price. The book also allows you to create a subscription to the firstwriter.com website for free until 2020. This means you can get free access to the firstwriter.com website, where you can find even more listings, and also benefit from other features such as advanced searches, daily email updates, feedback from users about the markets featured, saved searches, competitions listings, searchable personal notes, and more. “I know firsthand how lonely and dispiriting trying to find an agent and publisher can be.
