Christian Writers Guild Acquires Sally Stuart’s Christian Writers’ Market Guide

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — As of March 1, the Jerry B. Jenkins Christian Writers Guild will have acquired “Sally Stuart’s Christian Writers Market Guide,” the annual comprehensive resource guide offering up-to-date information on the Christian publishing industry. Stuart’s annual publication, now in its 26th year, has become a reliable source for the critical information needed by those seeking to publish their work in the Christian community. The resource will still 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,” says Jenkins. “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 announces that Kerma Murray, former operations director of the Jerry B. Jenkins Christian Writers Guild, will be the point person for the market guide, as well as for the recently acquired Word Weavers local critique groups. She will manage these operations in her new role as special assistant to the owner.

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.
