Writer's Digest October 2019 Digital Edition
In the October 2019 Writer’s Digest, themed “Agents” we’ll help writers find agents, craft anthology pitches, sell film and audio rights to their books, and more. This issue’s articles include:
+ Our Annual Agent Roundup: Our annual agent feature includes 27 wish lists and full profiles of agents eager to read your work, and a panel with 5 agents acquiring literary fiction—they explain what “literary” means to them, comment on the importance of character, talk about beauty in language, and detail what makes a manuscript “pure magic.” By Kara Gebhart Uhl
+ From Scratch to Anthology: A veteran anthology editor shows how to create your own collection, from coming up with the theme to pitching your final product to agents. By Kelly Jensen
+ Film and Audio Rights 101: To protect your work and even expand its reach, understanding audiobook, film, and TV rights is a must. A publishing attorney and Grammy-winning audiobook producer tells how. By Jessica Kaye
In addition, readers will be treated to a WD Interview with bestselling author Alice Hoffman, as well as a special Writer’s Workbook on beginnings and endings. This issue also contains all the regular columns and departments readers know and love like Take 2 on screenwriting, IndieLab for self-published authors, Conference Scene, Poetic Asides, Meet the Agent, Funny You Should Ask, and more.
