Whatsoever Magazine

Archive for April 2008

This week I prepared a short story manuscript for submission to a national children’s magazine. I formatted my manuscript specifically as the submission requirements stated. I created a cover page following the guidelines to the letter. I did everything I could to primp that manuscript for submission. And then I realised there was yet one thing remaining: the dreaded cover letter.

If you, like me, find cover letters intimidating, John Floyd’s Cover Me – I’m Going In! will give you some good guidelines to work with.

In other writing news, the next issue of Words from the Heart is going through its final edits. You can look for it in your mailbox soon!
