As a writer, we all enjoy sending our words out into the universe and, particularly, achieving recognition. Submitting work takes careful consideration and time.

Success can be yours if you do these four basic things:

  1. Research the journals appropriate for your genre.
  2. Spend time reading the journals as well as the winning stories.
  3. Write a good story.
  4. Follow the guidelines of the journal in which you are submitting.

The article, 10 Observations from the Slush Pile by author and editor, Suzanne Vincent, is an excellent resource for the do’s and don’t of submitting your work. Check it out and take note.

Success is in the details.

When was the last time you submitted?
