/  / The Writers Handbook by Turner, Barry Turner, Barry Amazon.co.uk Review: The 2002 (15th) edition of every creative writers yellow-covered networking manual contains over 5,500 alluring snippets of information for anyone who works anywhere in the writing industry or who would like to. This year, The Writers Handbook features--as well as the usual updated listings of publishers, magazines, newspapers, Web sites, agencies, associations and organisations--a range of new essays, including Bob G Ritchies Diary of an Aspiring Writer, David Hooper on Libel, Gareth Shannon on Negotiating Contracts, advice on how to sell poetry and on the bestsellers market, and a pithily written but soberly damning (anonymous) evaluative article about writing courses.: : Its commendably thorough. Take magazine listings, for example. They occupy 80 pages and are a useful source of addresses, both e-mail and postal, phone numbers and contact names for publications ranging all the way from Ace Tennis Magazine to The Vegan and from Your Horse to BBC Homes and Antiques, taking in The Stage and TES on the way. Use these if you think you could write for such titles. And if your novel, textbook, collection of poems or whatever is written but you have no publisher then The Writers Handbook provides a pretty detailed list of all the major publishers and 20 pages of small presses with an indication of the areas each covers, so you can start hawking your wares around the circuit.: : But take care. Media personnel and situations change constantly. Always phone the outfit youre interested in, using the number Turner has provided you with, before you make a formal approach. Ask for the name of the person you should deal with. Some of the particulars listed in The Writers Handbook may already be out of date which is why you cant escape the need to replace your copy of this helpful and potentially inspiring reference book annually so that at least the information is as current as possible. --Susan Elkin : : Synopsis: A complete reference for writers, journalists, publishers, editors, screenwriters and broadcasters. In its 15th year, this edition of the Writers Handbook contains over 5500 entries covering every area of creative writing. Key sections include book and magazine publishing, enlarged UK and US agents sections, newspapers, screenwriting, TV and radio, theatre, film and video, and poetry, alongside practical information about taxation, copyright, grants, bursaries, writers groups and much more. Special features for this edition include Melvyn Bragg on the new National Academy of Writing, David Hooper on Libel, Maureen Waller on the first year as a writer, the bestseller market, how to sell poetry, the Arts Councils guide to creative writing, and the most useful websites for writers.Comments: MACMILLAN 2001-PAPERBACK 842 PAGES very clean and  good - almost as new-  and immediately available.
