I read an article about being published before you get your novel published. I've heard that this helps let agents and editors know that you know somethings like how to write a paragraph. So . . . I submitted to Teen Ink. This website puts all the submitted materials on it, but it publishes a few of them in a print version. It's my goal to appear in this printed version sometime in highschool. Here's the thing, the more views, ratings and comments you get, the more likely you are to get published in the magazine.
You, my lovely readers, could help me in this. If you would comment on my submission, I would greatly appreciate it. I don't really write short stories, but you can find my book review here.
Thanks! If you're on Teen Ink, let me know and I'd love to read and review a few of your things.
