Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market 2016: The Most Trusted Guide to Getting Published Reviews
The Children’s and Writer’s Illustrator’s Market of 2016 rises to another level with this year’s 28th edition. There is a continual emphasis throughout the book on its importance in helping writers and illustrators who want to find their right path. Whether you’re looking to have your book published and haven’t done any research yet or you’re a successful and experienced author, this book has something important for you.For those new to the writing world, a great component of the edition is the nice blend of diverse agents who give their own personal insider tips on how to get sold and find success. A section on how to write a query letter can also be found. Along with it are actual successful queries where agents explain what is done right in each of them to make them interested in the submission. This part is great for anyone struggling with a query to help them understand what goes on in the mind of an agent.In addition to agents contributing, there are many interviews with actual writers and illustrators who share their own accounts of their remarkable journeys and give personal feedback. In this section an author usually covers a specific topic, like on writing a wordless picture book or how to have a long-lasting writing career, giving the book a unique and creative touch. There is another very helpful part where published writers who succeeded on their first time give advice to debut authors. These pieces of the book make it wonderful because they give a very personal side to the publishing business by having actual author accounts as they describe not only their journeys but how to be a better writer as an individual and as part of a community.One of my favorite parts of the book is how it has six different indexes divided by subject/genre, editor and agent names, age-level, photography, illustration, and a general index. These are perfect when looking for a very specific agent, publisher, or magazine based on your own book’s characteristics, saving you a lot of time. There is not a better book or online resource to use, when finding a reputable and established agent or publisher, than the Children’s and Writer’s Illustrator’s Market of 2016.Overall the 2016 edition has a really great blend of resources for both authors and illustrators. It is very easy to follow along and has the perfect mix of words and photographs, which is nice to be able to put a picture with a name every so often. This is an exceptional book for writers of all experiences, whether one be pre-published or a next bestseller, because advice is given for everyone in all stages of their writing careers.
I buy the new edition of the Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market every year and this year did not disappoint either. Besides the listings for everything from publishers big and small, magazines and contests, this edition has some terrific interviews and articles from authors and illustrators from picture books to young adult and in between. There is so much information to be gleaned from reading this book in it's entirety. A wonderful resource to have on hand.Chuck Sambuchino keeps this book interesting and intriguing and obviously full of important information for those of us working hard to get into children's books publishing.

This guide is a superb reference for writers and illustrators of children's books. Filled with useful articles such as "Before Your First Sale", "Writers for Hire", "Making Young Readers Laugh", and "Crafting a Query". Inspiring interviews with published writers and illustrators will motivate and educate you. There are lists of various publishers, agents, magazines, contests, etc. There is even a directory of Canadian publishers. I highly recommend this book for those who write or illustrate for children.
I'm pleased to have TWO articles in this edition!
A good resource for writers and illustrators looking to get published.
Essential for anyone seriously considering writing for children.
It's great to have so many resources in one place! The publishing industry has lots of expectations and guidelines for potential authors to follow. This book helps aspiring authors figure out how to take the next step and maintain that professional image. From how to write a query letter to contacts for potential agents, you'll find it in here. Great resource that has a permanent place on my desk.
Still helpful for illustrators when looking at where and to whom work should be sent! I especially love the index that helped me best match my work. That was very, very helpful.
