What You Need to Know to Get Published in the Christian Writer's Market

I just realized that because I was brought up in a home with a writer, I may know some things about publishing and writing resources that many people don't know -- things that I take as general knowledge. So, I'm going to share some of my knowledge with you and maybe it will help you as you reach for your dreams.

I received my first market book as a junior in high school. My mother was determined that if I wanted to publish poetry she would make sure that I knew where I could send it to get it published.

Many of the authors who read the Church of Christ Women Authors Blog are Christian authors. So, I thought as my first knowledge share I would tell you about this book. It's a handy tool for people who want to get into the genre of Christian writing.
