A look behind the curtain at how editors review and select submissions: things they look for in a strong submission, things that put them off, how to format and present your work, and how to appear professional throughout the process. We’ll go over authors’ tools for tracking and timing submissions, look at standard formatting, and review the dos and don’ts of cover letters.
Sarah Read is a dark fiction writer in the frozen north of Wisconsin. Her short stories can be found in GamutBlack Static, and other places, and in various anthologies including Exigencies, Suspended in Dusk, BEHOLD!

She is the Editor-in-Chief of Pantheon Magazine and of their associated anthologies, including Gorgon: Stories of Emergence. She is an active member of the Horror Writers Association. When she’s not staring into the abyss, she knits.
