The Writer's ABC Checklist

Poorly presented proposals and manuscripts are
the hallmarks of amateur writers.

But when a writer knows the key to impressing
editors, agents and publishers, doors open and
being published becomes a reality.

The Writer's ABC Checklist is written with all
writers in mind, to help them present works that
end up in the shortlist, not the shredder.

Suitable for writers of both fiction and non-
fiction aiming to be published in magazines,
radio, television, e-books or mainstream
publishing, The Writer's ABC Checklist is an
indispensable reference.
