If you write at a good level, it shouldn't be too hard to be recognized by the journals, but in many cases authors always try the same things without use. 1 ) Please refer to the journal you are presenting. For many authors this is not so evident. Please have at least one full edition, preferably more.
This gives you a fairly clear idea of what the editors like. Her YA history of banned schoolyard wolf romances, no matter how well spelled, will not call on someone who only publishes shabby dreadful societal tales. It' all too simple to send several e-mails to magazine listings with a copy and past introduction and an attachment to your story's Microsoft Outlook document.
2 ) Play the storyline in your introduction e-mail. You know, folks notice it when they receive lump-sum e-mails. Speak to the journalist by name, include the name of the journal, speak about the journal's styling and topics and why your entry would exactly be in. It shows that you have taken the necessary amount of your own free moment to get to know the book and that you really take charge of where you are made.
4 ) Take charge of where they are posted. Presenting this seems quite evident, but only to the journals that you are really interested in. They might find a paper run out of someone's courtyard hall, using a collection of cones that make them look like a funeral request, you might have happened upon a journal in which they devote several pages to voices of the insane, flashed or poor.
5 ) Show the play to the audience before you do it. It' s a lonely thing to write, but once you send something in, it doesn' t stay that way. There is a whole heterogeneous whole making history to the public, in whatever media, so get used to working with others to do your job as well as you can.
As an author, your task is to get them to understand what you're saying. 7 ) Please try to write as many brief histories as possible. The great, of course, Carver, Hemingway, Alice Munro, Chekov and so on, you' ll be reading them on biting, but you can also find younger, more recent authors. Understand how folks are spelling now.
8 ) Telling a tale. You know what your history is, you know what it says. Ensure that it has a beginning, a center and an end, a contradiction and all the things a good tale should have. 9) Submission to one journal after another. Eventually, it is not two refusals, but two assumptions, because then you have to get in touch with a journal with the negative information and know that there will never be a rapprochement from you again.
That doesn't mean you have to send the same history with regular update. And if a tale doesn't make the edit in a journal sting the fact and hug it. Usually they won't tell you why. This is either because the play is completely false for the journal, the next edition is devoted to a specific topic and your history is not included or was insufficient.
