I must say, that today, I’ve learned that no one pays attention to correct procedure.
Since I put out the information for The Writer’s Grapevine which has very specific guidelines for submitting and subscribing I have received…
1. Emails which include none of the requirements for subscribing
2. Submissions with no queries for guidelines
3. And queries which included no information as to how they heard of me or what they were submitting for.
People, please! You must be professional when dealing with me.
I do not…
· Take submissions from people who haven’t visited my blog
· Read my magazine
· Submitted a correct query for guidelines
· Do not follow said guidelines.
Nor do I send out my magazine to those who do not make a correct request.
My guidelines are simple but they’re specific.
So, Now, To submit to The Writer’s Grapevine, I must request that you write a query just as you would to any other magazine.
If you wish to be featured on my blog, you must again write a professional query.
Your query must include…
1. Who you are.
2. Where you are published if you are and where you blog if you do.
3. Where you heard of me.
4. Whether you’re querying for a subscription to The Writer’s Grapevine or to submit to the magazine.
5. If the magazine you must specify which column you wish to submit to.
6. If the blog you must specify whether you are querying about the Featured Business of the Week or the Featured Author of the Week.
From here on out anything which comes to me incorrectly will be immediately sent over to file 13.
If you wish to see my submission guidelines they’re listed on the homepage of my blog under “Submission Guidelines.”
