Writing and Selling Poetry, Fiction, Articles, Plays, and Local History
This book is designed to help both the beginning writer and the published writer who wants additional guidance in the marketing aspects of the trade. All the creative aspects of writing are covered from how to get and develop ideas to the ways and means of researching them. There are sections on copyright, contracts and computers as well as how to solve the "writer's block" and how to handle the writer's horror: rejections. An extensive bibliography serves as a guide for further reading. "Wisconsin Bookwatch" reported: ..".a thoroughly 'user friendly' guide written especially for novice writers trying to cope with the necessities of marketing, as well as writer's block, handling the soul-crushing rejections, scrutinizing one's contract, and more. 'Writing and Selling' is recommended as a brief, simply presented instructional reference offering meticulous step-by-step directions, and as an effective starting primer for aspiring writers seeking remunerative publication of their work."
