Publishing Know-how

Keep investigating how publishers think. Learn by experience, questioning, and reading. Learn from other, published writers. Read-scan Publisher's Weekly at library. Ask them to order if they do not have it. Maybe they will. Good writing has to find its place--its niche and home. Learn the ins and outs of publishers' ways of looking at what you do. Writers may see their works according to genre, lit, or art. Publishers see them as products they invest in. Our work has got to carry the weight, professionally, of marketplace interests or demands. ~ Opinari Quarterly (OQ)
