The 2014 Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market Is Out — And Here Are 8 Darn Good Reasons to Buy It (and Naturally I’m Giving Away Books!)

The 2014 Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market is out and available in major bookstores! Although it’s a few months old, I’ve never done a proper announcement and giveaway, but, heck, it’s 2014 — a new year with grand possibilities. What better way to start than a giveaway contest? The CWIM a great resource guide for writers of picture books and novels for kids (young adult, middle grade) as well as illustrators.

The new 2014 edition of the Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market is updated and packed with info. Now in its 26th year, the newest edition still provides great market and submission/contact information for book publishers, art reps, international publishers, literary agents, contests, magazines, conferences and more. In addition to hundreds of markets for your kids book, this new edition has the following:

  • Interviews with acclaimed novelists such as Beth Revis (Across the Universe), R.L. Stine (Goosebumps), Marie Lu (Legend), and many more. Hear from the masters.
  • Spotlights of 11 debut authors who broke out. These authors are great examples to study, as you can see what they did right, what they wish they did years ago, how they got their literary agents, and more.
  • 19 new listed art reps for illustrators. We found 19 new reps to list in the 2014 edition, along with other reps. And if you’re an illustrator, check out the interview with illustrator Debbie Ridpath Ohi in the book!
  • “New Agent Spotlights” that pinpoint new/newer literary reps who are actively seeking submissions and clients NOW.
  • And much more.

    Mr. Sambuchino,

    I was so surprised when I logged onto this website, only to see my name, among the three winners. I have been checking every other day since I entered the contest, just to see who was picked. How very exciting that I was one of the people chosen. (I might have squealed like a little girl when I first found out.)

    I cannot thank you enough! Thank you, for writing such a valuable resource for us YA Authors and Illustrators. Also, for the opportunity to win a copy of Children’s Writer’s & Illustrator’s Market. Your book will be invaluable as I continue to draw ever-nearer to publishing my own work.

    I would also suggest any other YA Authors or Illustrators, to pick up their own copy of this book and take a look around the Writer’s Digest website. The information and tools they have avalible will help, no matter what stage of writing or publishing, you are currently at.

    My Gratitude,

    I absolutely LOVE this site. I am still finding the courage to put myself out there as a writer, but Writer’s Digest offers wonderful tips by those who are prominent in the industry. The encouragement is amazing. Thank you!!!

    This site has been a godsend recently (‘cuz I only just discovered it!)
    It’s the little writer buddy tapping on my shoulder, pointing things out to me and saying, “Hey, try this! Have you thought about that? Keep writing! We’re all in this together!”
    Thank-you for the resources, the encouragement, and the connections. And please, keep doing what you do.

    As I prepare for the release of my first novel, I find myself constantly wandering back to Writer’s Digest to absorb the powerful marketing information and tips they have available. The article Build a Platform & Start Blogging; have been a critical component at this stage in my career.
