Jerry B. Jenkins Buys Christian Writers Market Guide
Jerry B. Jenkins‘ Christian Writers Guild has acquired Sally Stuart’s Christian Writers Market Guide, the annual guide to Christian publishing industry writing markets.
Jenkins amassed million of dollars as the co-author, with Dr. Tim LaHaye, of the Left Behind series.
Stuart’s annual publication, now in its 26th year, is an important resource for those seeking to publish their work in the Christian community. The directory will continue to be published by Tyndale House, but with the 2012 edition will change its title to The Christian Writer’s Market Guide and the byline will switch from Sally Stuart to Jerry B. Jenkins.
“Sally Stuart is an old friend and colleague who has set the bar high for this guide for more than a quarter century,” Jenkins said. “Our hope at the Christian Writers Guild is to do justice to her legacy and continue to provide this most helpful resource for writers.”
Christian Writers’ Market Guide offers tips and ideas for Christian writers and includes contact information, pay rates, submission guidelines for more than 400 book publishers, 600 periodicals and websites as well as information on hundreds of literary agents, contests, conferences and editorial services.
Jenkins also announced that Kerma Murray, former operations director of the Jerry B. Jenkins Christian Writers Guild, will oversee the development and marketing of the guide.
The Christian Writers Guild was founded in 1965 by Norm Rohrer. Jenkins purchased the organization in 2003 and moved its offices to Colorado Springs, Colorado. The Christian Writers Guild offers training to aspiring and working writers through e-mail courses, conferences, contests, mentors and peer groups.
