THE MOST TRUSTED GUIDE TO THE WORLD OF CHILDREN’S PUBLISHING

If you write or illustrate for young readers with the hope of getting published, Children's Writer's & Illustrator's Market 2016 is the trusted resource you need. Now in its 28th edition, CWIM is the definitive publishing guide for anyone who seeks to write or illustrate for kids and young adults. Inside you'll find more than 500 listings for children’s book markets (publishers, agents, magazines, and more)--including a point of contact, how to properly submit your work, and what categories each market accepts. You'll also find:

  • Interviews with creators of today's successful children's books, including author Henry Winkler (The Hank Zipzer series); author-illustrator Will Hillenbrand (Sleep, Big Bear, Sleep!and other picture books); author Barney Saltzberg (The Day the Crayons Quit); and more.
  • "New Literary Agent Spotlights"--profiles of literary reps building their client lists right now. These agents are actively seeking authors of young adult, middle-grade, chapter books, and picture books.
  • Success stories--13 debut authors, as well as 9 successful debut illustrators, share their paths to publication so you can learn from their success and see what they did right.
  • Informative articles on how to make young readers laugh, how to build a career as an illustrator, how to sell your picture book, the difference between young adult and middle-grade, and much more.
  • A one-year subscription to the children's publishing content on WritersMarket.com.*

+ Includes exclusive access to the webinar "25 Tips on How to Succeed in Children's Publishing" by Danielle Smith of Red Fox Literary.

*Please note: The e-book version of this title does not include a one-year subscription to WritersMarket.com.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
