We are once again sponsoring the Tales in the Mail Challenge for the month of June
Tales in the Mail
Goal: To submit short fiction for publication.
This challenge is fairly straight forward, submit as many tales as you can. This challenge will help you get into the habit of submitting on a regular schedule.
At the beginning of the challenge set a submission goal for the month. Then break that goal down into a weekly number to make submitting more manageable. When setting your goal make it reasonable but stretch yourself. Sharing your goal is a powerful tool. Having accountability to others is a great motivator.
For this challenge a submission is a tale submitted to a publisher. You can submit the same tale to multiple publishers as long as their submission guidelines allow it.
We will post market lists on our blog several times a week to help with the submission process. Also feel free to post listings that you have found.
We will also post encouragements on our face book to cheer you forward.
I hope you will join us in our challenge.
