Kerr, Loyola Press, McGraw-Hill Contemporary, Planners Press, Rand McNally, Skylight Professional Development, Sourcebooks, Third World Press, University of Chicago Press, and World Book. This up-to-date guide provides an overview of each organization's publications program--including topics and titles they are currently looking to buy. Subject matter of these publishers ranges from poetry and theology to business and medical reference. Many publishers are moving into audio, video, and electronic formats.

A second section provides a summary of those freelance and fulltime resources they hire, along with any special skill or experience requirements for their projects. Publishers have opportunities for writers, editors, designers, illustrators, researchers, indexers; they are seeking subject matter experts in a wide range of topics. Also includes information about internship and summer job opportunities for college students.

The third section of data on each publisher includes current contact information, email addresses and web site URLs. This edition now includes writers guidelines and submission policies, where available.

Loaded with critical information about your target market, A Guide to Chicago Book Publishers is a must-have for freelancers, aspiring authors, and everyone who wants to do business with book publishers in Chicago.
