    These are the writers’ bibles and list, among other things, every magazine and newspaper published in the UK, and many overseas, including editorial contacts, what they publish, what they are looking for and what rates they pay. A quick look through will reveal that there is a publication for almost every hobby, interest or occupation, from Accountancy Age to Zoo Magazine and everything in between.

    I always advise people starting out in freelance writing to buy a current copy of The Writers’ and Artists’ Yearbook or The Writers’ Handbook. T

    Specialise in something you can share; whether it’s IT skills, being able to cook a family meal in under 10 minutes, or household cleaning tips; there will always be something that you know or a skill that you have that other people would like to know about, and more importantly a publication that will be willing to print it.
