submitting work for publication? HELP

   Thread Started October 25 at 8:05PM

If someone says they do not want your poem/story in the body of an email, but as an attachment (word document to be read blind) and they want a cover letter and short bio...should the cover letter and bio each be separate attachments? And what does a cover letter consist of? I hate to sound ignorant--but I am, really. I've never tried submitting anything before.

You should be OK to have the cover letter and bio as the body of your email, with only the poem/story in one separate attachment with no identifying info on it.

Good luck.

Thank you :-)


A book by our Michael Hogan

Sebastian and the Invisible Island tells the tale of a young boy stranded on a mysterious island where his only hope for rescue lies in feuding extraterrestrials who also yearn for home.

“Excellent reading material for the age group. A breath of fresh air for young people in an area that is growing darker.” –Robert
