The Writers and Artists Yearbook is published annually and it basically has the contact details for publishers, editors and commissioning editors of UK newspapers, magazines, book publishers, film, TV and radio producers. It also holds some valuable information about who belongs to what newspaper or publishing group; how to market your writing; how to approach different editors; how to present your ideas and what standard they would expect from you.

Like any other handbook, this is a reference gu

I loved the articles by famous authors, but as a self-published author myself I thought the info on self-publishing wasn't particularly useful. If you want a traditional publishing deal this book has lots of info to help you go about it. I recommend all writers get a copy of this book.
Very good resource for all writers to have cluttering up a shelf at home. You will reference it often.

Succinctly and simply written and blows the Fog of War away from the whole writing industry.

Very handy!

I think that the number of Reviews' for this publication speak for themselves - the good points and bad points being upheld in equal measure as far as I am concerned.

One would hope that they have reached this edition without the relevant details being fully updated each time, but as this is my first time of purchase that remains to be seen I guess.

This large volume covers a lot of ground, featuring info on literary agents and publishers, plus numerous articles to suit a different authors.

Although it has "2013" written on the cover, this was actually published during 2012.

This tome is especially worth checking out if you're an unpublished or a self-published author. It would be more sensible, of course, to purchase the most recent edition, though there are still lots of features in this if you can get it cheaper than the latest one.

I am a member of The Society of Authors and have been writing and published for many years ( ) and throughout my time writing I have frequently kept a copy of the W&A Yearbook to hand. Pleasingly they have always kept a uniform layout from year to year but in 2013 they have introduced new sections to the book to bring it as up to date as possible. I would recommend it to any aspiring writer as an essential work of reference and guidance.

Various is the correct author for any book with multiple unknown authors, and is acceptable for books with multiple known authors, especially if not all are known or the list is very long (over 50).

If an editor is known, however, Various is not necessary. List the name of the editor as the primary author (with role "editor"). Contributing authors' names follow it.

Note: WorldCat is an excellent res
