Children's Writer's and Illustrator's Market, also known as "CWIM," includes an annually updated "yellow pages" of book, magazine, and other publishers, information about conferences and agents, basic how-to information, and interesting feature articles.
Contents: The bulk of CWIM is taken up by the Markets section. This provides information about publishers of books, magazines, greeting cards, and plays. There are several profiles of industry "insiders" scattered through, including editor Deborah Brodie and writer Amy Timberlake. There are several hundred individual entries in all. The book publishers section has about 200 entries. I counted 22 marked as "new," including new companies and new imprints at established companies. (A few are companies that have been around a while but haven't been in CWIM before.) There is also a small section of Canadian and international companies. The entries vary in length, but always include addresses and other basics. Indexes help you find publishers by subject as well as name.
The first part of the book has articles, some of which present the same basic information for people just getting started every year, followed by 12 all-new articles and five "First Books" profiles.
Comments: Though I like the feature articles, the reason to get CWIM every year is the Markets section. The editors attempt to update every publisher listing every year. What they print is almost always accurate, and saves anyone who needs information about children's publishers an enormous amount of time and effort.
The 2006 edition contains more than 800 listings of opportunities. Book publishers, magazine opportunities, literary agents, contests and conferences are just a few of the numerous types of listings you get in 400+ pages.
Each listing is updated yearly to make sure the contact information, pay rates and specific publishing needs are accurate. Editors of the guide generally work all year long to ensure the listings are up-to-date.
What makes this guide even more valuable are the articles, interviews and also help for those just getting started in the business. The guide could simply be a compilation of listings and it would be a great investment but the fact that these other resources are added make it a powerful tool for any writer or illustrator's career.
If you're searching for markets on your own, you're wasting precious time. The 2006 Writer's & Illustrator's Market does the tedious work for you so you can simply choose an appropriate market and find a publishing outlet for your work.
