The American Writers Market is certainly larger than the Canadian, however as many writers from Canada cater to American publications, it happens vice versa too. The same is true for Australien, British and any authors from english-speaking countries. Literature is supported heavily by the Canadian Government and there are hundreds of magazine- and book publishers to be found in Canada – and in the Canadian Writers Market book.
The Canadian Writer’s Market offers practical advice on everything from manuscript preparation to copyright law, from information on pay rates to writers’ workshops.
It includes comprehensive and up-to-date listings for:
- consumer magazines
- literary and scholarly journals
- trade, business, and professional publications
- daily newspapers
- book publishers
- literary agents
- awards, competitions, and grants
- writers’ organizations and support agencies
- writers’ workshops, courses, and retreats
- Provincial & Federal Support Programs
- Creative Writing & Journalism Courses at Colleges & Universities
