Here is a handout about ten top tips for getting published from what will be an outstanding breakout session that Elfrieda Abbe, publisher of The Writer, will present at the San Francisco Writers Conference, February 16th-19th.
10. Never underestimate the power of a good contest.
9. Never underestimate the power of a good article.
8. DIY publishing—More writers are doing it successfully, should you?
7. Platform counts.
6. Publishing is moving online. Are you?
5. Think “packaging content.”
4. Polish your work.
3. The “so-what” factor. What makes your story different and why should we care?
