During the October live chat, we talked about the pros and cons of print publication and online publication. The discussion raised questions and concerns, and we shared some approaches and resources.
We generally think that online submission systems might help us build regular submission habits, and we couldn't think of any online journals that didn't use online submissions systems.
We also see possibilities for quicker response and publishing…Continue
The Submission Mission had an interesting discussion about self-publishing during the September Live Chat. I’m no expert of self-publishing, but here’s a quick follow-up to that conversation. My take-away was that self-publishing looks like an easier route but actually demands that the author put in a lot of time beyond the writing itself.
Perhaps the easiest way to self-publish is to set up a blog. I…Continue

IDEA #2 FOR SUMMER: Define Submission Widely
When I sit down, choose a few poems or a story to submit, and double-check the guidelines for a few literary journals, I’m in the process of submitting. Each envelope that goes out and each attachment to the online form or email counts as a submission. I’m sure we can all agree on that.…Continue
Idea #1 for Summer: BOOK REVIEWS
One way to get some publications under your belt while you’re finishing your novel or waiting for the responses to your poems from journals is to write book reviews. Here are some of the advantages:
On June 3, 2011, THE SUBMISSION MISSION (click HERE to join the She Writes group) had its second live chat. Out of that discussion and other posts since, we’ve developed some specific ideas about where to submit our writing. Here are some links!

HAVE ENVELOPES AND STAMPS ON HAND
A lot of journals and literary agents have moved to doing everything electronically. Indeed, some of my post-chat submissions were accomplished by attaching a file to an email message or by using a submissions manger. But I was surprised that most of my submissions in this round—8 or 9 out of 13—were by regular postal mail.
Even if you think most of your submissions will be electronic, don’t put yourself into the situation of finding an…Continue
