Announcing the 33rd Edition of Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market!

Writer's Market editor Robert Lee Brewer announces the 33rd edition of Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market, edited by Amy Jones and the most trusted guide to getting your fiction published.

Recently, I announced the release of the 100th edition of Writer's Market, also known as "the big book on getting published." But I'm also excited to announce the impending release of the 33rd edition of Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market!

Whenever I start discussing the Market Books, I'm inevitably asked the million dollar question: What's the difference between Writer's Market and Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market? Well, it's pretty simple: Writer's Market is the "big book" that covers everything related to publishing, while Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market really hones in on the process of getting your writing for children and young adults published.

An analogy I like to make is that Writer's Market is kind of like the Walmart of the Market Books in that it has the most overall listings and a little bit of every type of listing (including markets for adult readers), while Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market is like a specialty store that doesn't have everything under the sun, but it really does deep dive into its niche. In this case, Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market is the specialty book dedicated to getting your writing for children and young adults published, whether fiction, nonfiction, or poetry.

As such, this 33rd edition of Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market is filled with great articles dedicated to writing and publishing your writing for children and young adult. It also has more listings specifically for markets aimed at children and young adults than Writer's Market. If your primary goal is to get your writing for children and young adults published, this truly is the guide for you.

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

Robert Lee Brewer, Senior Editor
