#12: Do as you're told: the submission process for writers

In this episode of the podcast I talk to poet and Publicity Chief for The O'Brien Press, Donna Sørensen. Sending your work to literary agents, publishers and journals can be such a tricky business and often quite daunting. But there are a few things you can do (including what you're told) to make the submission process easier. If you're thinking or worried about submitting your writing to some place or another, I think you'll find our chit-chat useful. I'm happy to try and answer any further questions (if I can) in the comments below, of course. We also talk about our favourite thing of the last couple of weeks. I go for the Do Lectures, whereas Donna opts for a priest on a bicycle. We also talk about the recent furore over how to accept criticism. I have a bit of a rant. But it's a positive rant. Naturally.
