Synopsis: Provides publishing information for the budding young writer, including tips on preparing a manuscript for submission, advice from editors, profiles of published young writers, and addresses of publications and contests to which manuscripts may be sent.
From Booklist: Here is a book that belongs in every school library and English classroom, especially those that have Young Authors programs. It should be used in creative writing classes and be on the desks of children who aspire to be writers. Its reference use is limited, as the lists of magazines and contests that accept and encourage submissions from young people are a relatively small portion of this fourth edition.
Part 1 gives all the basics of writing and preparing manuscripts for submission. Beside having more detailed instructions than previous editions, special gray boxes have "Author's Tips" that refer the user to other sections of this work or other helpful books. This section also cautions about vanity presses and contests that require cash contributions before awards are given. There are instructions on using computers and online bulletin board services, which, for a novice, will relieve some initial anxiety. The last chapter has questions from users of past editions and the author's answers.
Part 2 lists magazines and contests with helpful information about procedures. There are 156 listed; 98 are new to this edition. Part 3 has new essays from young writers about the writing process as they experience it, especially the hundreds of rejection slips they receive before acceptance. There is also a short story which Stephen King wrote as a teenager--and which he admits is bad.
So much of this work is new that it supersedes previous editions. It is affordable for even the smallest budget or personal purchase. It is a must for school libraries, teachers of writing, and children's sections of public libraries.
