My thanks to Wendy Schmalz for being my first blog guest. Her remarks remind us that publishing is a business that takes many forms. If we want to see our words in print, we must understand how the business side works. Many authors and artists work on their own while others use agents. A word of caution though. No agent can sell a weak manuscript and none will try. Whether we go it alone or rely on an agent, our responsibility to produce excellent writing doesn’t change.
I’m compiling a list of other experts to invite to share their experiences and advice on my blog over the coming months. If there is a particular subject you’d like to see addressed, let us know.
Have you discovered our first three thanks poems? They’re posted under ADULT WORD OF THE MONTH POEMS. Each one offers a different way to express thanks. So far we haven’t seen a poem this month in our YOUNG POETS’ WORD OF THE MONTH POEMS, but i bet we will. I’m counting on it!
