The Market Guide for Young Writers: Where and How To Sell What You Write. 5th Edition.
This completely updated edition of a marketing manual for writers ages 8 to 18 provides over 150 listings of markets and contests that accept submissions from young writers. The manual's listings discuss the kind of material the organization wants, the editor's or sponsor's remarks and suggestions, what a writer can expect in the way of pay, contest rules and prizes, and more, including information about online publications. The manual also offers: new profiles of professional editors and young writers; thorough directions for formatting plays and scripts (with examples); answers to those questions a young writer does not know whom to ask; help in studying markets and their guidelines; advice about markets and contests to avoid; information about local and regional places to submit writing; and tips with important information, warnings, and resource alerts.
