Seven Steps to Publication (Rev. 25 November 2009

Review submission guidelines and desired service checklist.

Check your work to make sure that it meets these guidelines and it’s free of spelling errors, garbled syntax, typographical and other embarrassing things.

Send in your work on hard copy, along with the desired service level sheet filled out, and a bank or money order for $35.00. [Personal checks are subject to a $15.00 fee if your it bounces.] DO NOT send cash.

Send all of this to By and For Writers, c/o Tim Bosworth, 1110 Lombard St. #3, Philadelphia, PA, 19147. We’re sure your work will be fine, but if for some reason we don’t think your work meets guidelines, we’ll return your work and your check to you in the S.A.S.E. you’ve provided. If you haven’t provided one, we’ll shred the work and hold the check until you send us an S.A.S.E.

If you requested a critique, review it and revise your work as you see fit. Then post it on our blog. If you don’t want a critique, you can skip this step and go directly to step 6.

If you expecting feedback, wait until you get enough. The best way to get people to give feedback is to tell everyone you know you want it and drive them to the blog, Then revise your story and repost it along with a note to us at that you wish it to be published. If you didn’t request feedback, go directly Step 7.

Authorized us in writing (via email or snail mail) to publish your work and wait for enough material to accumulate for an issue equal to about 50 pages. That’s 5 submissions of 10 pages each. You’ll get a free copy and $1 off the single issue price.
