Utilizing Resources

For the A to Z Challenge, I’m posting promo and other tips for writers. Today it’s utilizing resources.

There’s thousands of resources (probably millions) for writers and authors, so let me focus on one big one - the Literary Marketplace.

What is it? From the Literary Marketplace website:

Featuring listings on more than 30,000 companies, books, periodicals, awards, courses, or events (to name just a few categories), no matter what -- or who-- you are looking for in the book trade, chances are you'll find it in A small sampling of the listings includes:
Literary Agents
Distributors & Sales Representatives
Book Producers
Exporters & Importers
Manufacturers & Printers
Translators & Interpreters
Paper Suppliers
Remainder Dealers
Reference Books & Magazines
Literary Association, Societies & Awards
(and International listings as well.)

Three ways to access:
Your local library - be sure they have a current edition
Purchase the 2-volume set for $329.00 - new editions available every year
Subscribe to the website for $399.00 - updated on a continuous basis

Have you ever utilized this amazing resource?

Wow, for $329 it should have all that! The website is a better option as it's updated more frequently.


Great tips Thank you,

It's not one I've heard of. I think I check out my library. That is a more feasible option.;)

It has EVERYTHING! If you use the one at your local library, just be sure it's a current edition. The 2003 version just won't cut it.
