Writer Essentials for Submitting: Step 1

You’ve got a great story. Follow Step 1. Then go to Step 2, Step, 3, and Step 4. Then you’ll have the Essentials for Submitting: Go for it.

Step 1 Get work critiqued, revised, printed, and proofed.

Get your article, poem, puzzle, devotion, illustration, short story, chapter book, middle grade novel, young adult novel, adult novel, play, song, stage play or screenplay critiqued, revised, printed, and proofed.

A. Software to help you edit your work.

B. Critique Group: Join a professional writer’s association. Many have writing critique groups available. Google critique groups near you.

C. Professional Editor – If you plan to Self-Publish your writing, I highly suggest you get it edited professionally.

Good luck! You can do this!

  1. This is such a fun website. I am going to try this. Right now am looking for an editor for my book manuscript, but I also have a number of short stories and will be a “pubsubber” for those. I believe any action creates momentum, so it’s good to get started. Fun to have others doing the same thing, too. Great website, Joan; thanks!!

    1. Dear Cecly Ann Mitchell,
      Thank you very much for writing. Thanks for wishing me a Happy Blog Anniversary! I’ve been busy in final edits on Joan’s Elder Care Guide so I haven’t celebrated yet this year! What kind of writing do you do?

      I’ll send you an email to join Pub Subbers from the Pub Subbers Yahoo Group. Once you’re in the group, please tell the other members your name and the kind of writing you do.
