Announcing the 100th Edition of Writer's Market!

Writer's Market editor Robert Lee Brewer announces the 100th edition of Writer's Market, the most trusted guide to getting published.

Tomorrow (Nov. 9, 2021), the 100th edition of Writer's Market officially goes on sale, and I'm excited to share the news. After all, it's the 21st edition I've worked on, and my 15th as the editor.

Writer's Market, 100th Edition

Inside this book, you'll find a completely updated version of the ever-popular "How Much Should I Charge?" freelance pay rate chart. You'll also find a brand new list of "20 Literary Agents" actively searching for writers and their writing. Plus, there's helpful information on writing queries, finding funds for writers, and so much more!

But most importantly, you'll find thousands of listings for literary agents, consumer magazines, trade journals, book publishers, and contests! Whether you write fiction, nonfiction, or poetry, there should be plenty of markets available for your writing to find a home and for you to find payment.

Through 100 editions, our goal has remained the same because we know your goal has remained the same, even if the platforms, the submission methods, trends, and fads have all evolved: It's always been about getting published and getting paid for what you write. So let's keep finding success with our writing together.

Until next we meet, keep writing and marketing what you write.

Robert Lee Brewer, Senior Editor
