ARE YOU READY TO SUBMIT?

No?

YES???

SubmitOctober2012 is the manuscript submission equivalent of National Novel Writing Month (which is coming up, BTW, but that’s another story. )

From the website: “SubmitOctober is one month dedicated for you to get serious about manuscript submissions. It's time to step away from writing your manuscript to submitting your manuscript to agents or editors….Starting October 1, you will research agents/editors and their submission guidelines. The goal is to find 10 agents or editors that best fit your genre, writing style, and age range for your manuscript. Throughout October, you will send your manuscript to these 10 agents/editors based on their submission guidelines.”

Note: You are responsible for finding the agents and/or editors—a pretty simply feat nowadays, what with AgentQuery.com and a host of other online resources, as well as books like WRITERS MARKET and Chuck Sambuchino's GUIDE TO LITERARY AGENTS--and you do the submitting. Be sure to check each agent/editor’s submission guidelines, too. For example, you don’t want to send your ms off to a publisher house that only accepts agented queries (i.e. the majority of major houses) (hey, I used “major” twice). And many agents are very particular about the type of manuscripts they’d like to see; don’t waste their time, and yours, by sending them something they have no interest in reading, let alone representing.

10 SUBMISSIONS, guys! Sign up and check out the site. Let’s get motivated! I know you can do it!

write from the heart

This is the first time I'm hearing about SubmitOctober2012. Sounds like an interesting challenge! If I had a manuscript ready, I'd definitely want to partake in this. But since I don't, I'll just sit back and cheer on everyone else who does! *\o/*
