Common Mistakes In Online Submissions To Literary Agents And Editors

Submitting a book online to literary agents, or submitting poetry, stories, and prose online to editors, poses great potential for error. Today’s creative writer needs to know how to make successful online submissions. If you’re submitting essays, poetry, and short stories, you can submit your writing directly to an editor at a literary magazine using an online submission form, also known as a submission manager. If you’re submitting a novel to a publisher or a literary agent, you may opt to send a query letter by email (an e-query) rather than by regular mail.

Taking advantage of technology is smart. Unfortunately, writers often make mistakes when submitting online, which can result in their work not being considered for publication.

Avoid these common mistakes when using online submission forms (submission managers).
