An Editor's Guide to Getting Published: Best Practices for Submitting Your Jewelry Designs
This product will be accessible from My Downloadable Products located in My Account after purchase.
As jewelry artists, we constantly look at magazines, books, and even websites to find inspiration and try different techniques. Once you are confident enough in your chosen techniques, you may feel like you have the perfect design that you're eager to share with the jewelry-making community. A great way to do that is by submitting your work to be published! But, where do you begin? How do you figure out what publication or website is best for your work? And, how do you properly write a step-by-step tutorial that others can clearly understand to make your project?
If you submit a project worthy of publication, it can give your work and your business a big boost with the extra exposure. What's more, it can even be republished in special issue magazines, online downloads, or in eBooks. Best yet, if you write a great project, the editors may contact you again to publish more of your work!
Join Sara Richardson, a chain maille jewelry artist and current contributing editor for Step by Step Wire Jewelry magazine, for her web seminar that will teach you all of this and more so you can get your jewelry designs published! Sarah will give you an insider's perspective about the best (and worst) practices on how to properly submit your work. From sending in your first photo, to naming your piece, to catching common writing and grammatical errors, to pairing step photos with your written steps, to writing that perfect short biography; you'll cover all of this information (and more!) in this helpful web seminar!
During this web seminar you'll learn:
- How to properly write and format a step-by-step tutorial for a publication.
- The proper steps for submitting a project proposal to an editor.
- Common mistakes editors find in tutorials and how to avoid them.
