Christian Writers’ Market Guide 2009 by Sally Stuart

I'm going to step out of our finance focus for one post to introduce the new copy of the Christian Writers’ Market Guide 2009 by Sally Stuart

The Resource Guide to Getting Published
For 24 years running, the Christian Writers’ Market Guide has remained the most comprehensive, complete, essential, and highly-recommended resource for beginning and veteran Christian writers, agents, editors, publishers, publicists, and those teaching writing classes.
This year’s Guide is even handier with a CD-Rom included that features the full text of the book for easy searches of topics, publishers, and markets, as well as 100 pages of exclusive content including indexes and writing resource listings.
This is the resource you need to get noticed—and published.

Completely updated and revised to feature the latest on…
more than 1,200 markets for the written word
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
and 166 contests (29 new)


This is by far one of the most helpful books I own. If you want to write for Christian audiences, this book will provide everything you need to be successful except inspiration. It is the most comprehensive compiliation of Christian markets for writing...actually it's probably the ONLY one.

In addition to listings of all publishers, It has a fabulous section called Helps for Writers. This includes listings of conferences and workshops, Christian writers' clubs, editorial services, agents, and contests. Sally Stuart has included a CD-ROM with resources for writers, including business and legal matters, freelance jobs, research helps, website development, software, and writing instruction tools.

Every Christian writer should own a copy of this book!
