The Christian Writers’ Market Guide will help you more easily target the appropriate publishers. In the guide you will find topical listings that will indicate exactly which publishers are interested in a selection of almost 150 different topics. In the magazine section they are also broken down by that target audience, so you can select the age group or specific audience and the periodicals listed will match that audience.
Your goal as you use the guide is to start compiling a list of possible publishers for each topic or type of writing you are targeting. For periodicals, you will want to send for their writers’ guidelines and a sample copy. For book publishers, send for their writers’ guidelines and a copy of their latest catalog. The market guide will tell you the size of envelope and the amount of postage needed for your SASE. If you have Internet access, you can copy the guidelines directly from their Websites.
