About Writers & Artists

The Writers’ & Artists’ Yearbook, part of Bloomsbury Publishing Plc, has remained the authoritative resource for writers for over 100 years.

Based on customer demand – and a commitment to helping would-be writers on their publishing journey – was created in 2011 as a natural extension of the Yearbook. This free website offers a community platform, an extensive collection of free advice articles on the writing and publishing process and also a free-to-use Writing Calendar feature. The site contains a Shop page, the option of subscribing annually to our Listings data, and is also home to a number of editing services designed to give writers access to the right expert at precisely the right moment for your manuscript.

Finally, has also become the place to reserve your seat at some essential events on the writing and publishing process. Hundreds of writers have benefited from unforgettable workshops with publishing industry professionals (such as literary agents seeking representation or editors offering advice on how to make your book as good as it can be) or award-winning authors. For booking information and to view a full list of the writing courses, evening masterclasses, half-day and/or full-day conferences currently available, visit our Events page.
