The 2017 edition of firstwriter.com’s bestselling directory for writers is the perfect book for anyone searching for literary agents, book publishers, or magazines. It contains over 1,300 listings, including revised and updated listings from the 2016 edition, and over 500 brand new entries.

• 90 pages of literary agent listings – that’s nearly as much as the Writer’s Market (56 pages) and the Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook (40 pages) combined!

• 106 pages of book publisher listings, compared to just 89 pages in the Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook.

• 94 pages of magazine listings – 50% more than the 62 pages in the Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook.

All in a book with a price less than half the RRP of the Writer’s Market ($49.99), and nearly half the RRP of the Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook (£20.00).

Industry insights are provided by top literary agent Andrew Lownie, of the Andrew Lownie Literary Agency Ltd: named by Publishers Marketplace as the top selling agent worldwide.

Subject indexes for each area provide easy access to the markets you need, with specific lists for everything from romance publishers, to poetry magazines, to literary agents interested in thrillers.

International markets become more accessible than ever, with listings that cover both the main publishing centres of New York and London, as well as markets in other English speaking countries. With more and more agents, publishers, and magazines accepting submissions online, this international outlook is now more important than ever.

There are no adverts, no advertorials, and no obscure listings padding out hundreds of pages. By including only what’s important to writers – contact details for literary agents, publishers, and magazines – this directory is able to provide more listings than its competitors, at a substantially lower price.

The book also allows you to create a subscription to the firstwriter.com website for free until 2018. This means you can get free access to the firstwriter.com website, where you can find even more listings, and also benefit from other features such as advanced searches, daily email updates, feedback from users about the markets featured, saved searches, competitions listings, searchable personal notes, and more.

“I know firsthand how lonely and dispiriting trying to find an agent and publisher can be. So it's great to find a resource like firstwriter.com that provides contacts, advice and encouragement to aspiring writers. I've been recommending it for years now!”

~ Robin Wade; literary agent at the Wade & Doherty Literary Agency Ltd, and long-term firstwriter.com subscriber

Set reminders on listings to notify you when to submit your work, when to follow up, when to expect a reply, or any other custom action.

As a subscriber you will be able to take advantage of our email alert service, meaning you can specify your particular interests and we’ll send you automatic email updates when we change or add a listing that matches them. So if you’re interested in labels dealing in hard rock in the United States you can have us send you emails with the latest updates about them – keeping you up to date without even having to log in. 

User feedback  

Our databases include a user feedback feature that allows our subscribers to leave feedback on each listing – giving you not only the chance to have your say about the markets you contact, but giving a unique artist’s perspective on the listings. 

Save on copyright protection fees  

If you’re sending your work away to record labels and managers you should first consider protecting your copyright. As a subscriber to MusicSocket you can do this through our site and save 10% on the copyright registration fees normally payable for protecting your work internationally through the Intellectual Property Rights Office (https://www.CopyrightRegistrationService.com).
