Membership fees are non-refundable. You may change your plan at any time, but the new plan will take effect only at the end of your current payment period. You may also cancel your account at any time through the Marketplace Web site, but we cannot return any portion of a prior payment.

“I've been telling writers at conferences and workshops for years that they should subscribe to Publishers Marketplace, the insider's connection for crucial book publishing information, and a tremendous resource for every writer. And now it's more important than ever with all the changes going on in the business.

“I use Publishers Marketplace every day to learn what I need to know as an acquiring book editor for a large commercial company. So this isn't an infomercial, but heartfelt advice.”
