November 16, 2007, Newsletter Issue #136: Ps & Qs of Submitting Work

Tip of the Week

You may be lucky enough to find a journal that offers online or email submission options. For most journals, however, youll have to do it the old-fashioned way.

*Do include a copy of the story/poem/essay, as well as a SASE that the magazine can use for your acceptance/rejection slip.

*Do let the magazine know if youve published elsewhere--this sometimes ups your chances.

*DONT tell them if youve sent the piece to other journals ("simultaneous submission"). Many forbid it and will send your submission straight to the recycle bin.

*Dont call the magazine to find out the status of your submission.
