You’ve written the manuscript. It’s gone through the editing process and several rewrites. Now you plan to submit it to an agent.
But wait! Before you hit the submit button, you need to know:
- How a story goes from slush reader to editor
- Why a story is chosen for publication
- How to avoid common mistakes that get your manuscript rejected
Guest speaker Cyn Bermudez was a slush reader for Clarksworld, one of the top short story magazines in science fantasy. During her presentation she will share how to avoid common mistakes and keep your manuscript from being rejected.
