The Writer’s e-Handbook

By Jotham Burrello

“This book answers nearly every question emerging writers ask: cover letters and contracts to residencies, fellowships, and beyond. What a wonderful resource for writers of all genres.” —Lisa Ohlen Harris, Southern New Hampshire University


The Writers’ e-Handbook is a gateway into the writing world for any emerging writer, regardless of age or genre. Jotham Burrello candidly details writing instruction, the writing life, and publishing options. It’s the best of digital, mixing text, linked video clips, and hundreds of hyperlinks to industry news, market research, and writing advice. Literary, speculative, YA, and romance writers and editors offer advice on writing and publishing.

There’s nothing like it on the market.

e-Handbook includes interviews with over thirty writers, instructors, bloggers, editors, and program directors, including: Jane Hamilton, Audrey Niffenegger, Jay Bonansinga, Mort Castle, Stephanie Kuehnert, Christopher Castellani, Tina Jens, Joe Meno, Megan Stielstra, Richard Chewdyk, Terrance Hawkins, Kelly Caldwell, Julia Borcherts, Jeff Parker, Isaac Fitzgerald, and many more.
