Abstract:

""The Bateman New Zealand Writer's Handbook" is now a recommended text for many writing courses around the country. It is full of useful advice for those wanting to improve their chances of having work accepted by editors and publishers working in all print media. Along with extensive, fully updated lists of newspapers, periodicals and publishers, the book covers topics such as research, presentation of manuscripts, copyright and libel laws, taxation, proofreading and editing. There are chapters covering the area of writing for children and publishing one's own work, either through traditional printing or through e-book technology. The book also describes how to assess the potential market, by analysing what editors look for in a manuscript and helping writers sell themselves and their work"--Publisher's description.
