Writers' & Artists' Yearbook 2021 by S.J. Watson


The latest edition of the bestselling guide to all you need to know about how to get published is packed full of advice, inspiration, and practical information.


For over 110 years, The Writers' & Artists' Yearbook has been guiding writers and illustrators on the best way to present their work, how to navigate the world of publishing, and ways to improve their chances of success. It is equally relevant for writers of novels and non-fiction, poems and scripts and for those writing for children, YA and adults, and covers works in print, digital and audio formats. If you want to find a literary or illustration agent or publisher, self-publish, or crowdfund your creative idea, then this Yearbook will help you. As well as sections on publishers and agents, newspapers and magazines, illustration and photography, theatre and screen, there is a wealth of detail on the legal and financial aspects of being a writer or illustrator.
