Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"If you want to set yourself up as an freelance writer of feature articles then here is a book that will give you plenty of solid, professional advice." - Writing Magazine

The best edition so far, I've bought the previous two editions of this book and they were good, this one is by far the best. Excellent!
Customer review, Amazon.co.uk, November 11, 2005


Reviews of previous editions:
"The best book ever on article writing."
James Gracie, Writer's Monthly

"My 'Bible'! This was my primary reference source when I was self-teaching myself to become a writer. I have subsequently had over 12,000 words and 260 pictures published in 20 UK leisure and lifestyle magazines seen by approximately 2.5 million readers."
Customer review, Amazon.co.uk

"I would recommend this to intermediate level writers - those who are not complete beginners, but not seasoned professionals either. They will benefit most."
