Sometimes as writer’s we feel like that! Instead of submitting a manuscript we worked hard on to write, we opt to remain hidden and never actually send it in.
I want to encourage you to follow through and submit your nonfiction manuscript for a children’s magazine you’ve been working on!
If you’re not quite done yet, go ahead and wrap it up.
Then get feedback on it, hopefully through a critique group you participate in. (Not a member of a critique group? Start your own like I recently did! I e-mailed a small group of like-minded writer friends I know from social media sites and invited them to join. It’s so helpful to have extra pairs of eyes to read through my manuscripts.)
And then send it in. I’m getting mine ready to submit too.
If you’re submitting a nonfiction article to Clubhouse Jr., be sure to mention that you followed along here on my blog to learn more about their particular interests and types of nonfiction they need.
So do you have any questions about this entire process as we’re wrapping up this discussion here on my blog about writing nonfiction articles for children’s magazines? If so, be sure to post them here and let me know.
And stay tuned for our next adventure…I can hardly wait!
Next up here on my blog, we’re going to target a publisher who accepts unsolicited submissions for nonfiction children’s picture books! I hope you’ll join me on the journey.
(And if you signed up for the free giveaway last week here on my blog, the winners have been chosen. Their names will be announced in an upcoming post! Hopefully one of them will be you!!!!!)
