SCROLL DOWN TO FIND A LIST OF ALL ABOUT SUBMISSIONS POSTS
Sub Sixers sent out at least 838 submissions in 2013. And 409 of those submissions were picture book manuscripts.
Welcome to the “Sub Six” picture book submission support group introduction page.
The Sub Six focus is supporting each other as we work toward our submission goals. Last year, we set out to submit a manuscript every other month, with the result being six submitted manuscripts for each member by the end of the year. However, many of the members surpassed that number in a few months. So, we just support each other. We ask questions, share news, share concerns, ask for help, and so on. We also have a new Sub Six series: ALL ABOUT SUBMISSIONS. In the group, I post a submission tally sheet doc each month. Many members add their submissions to the tally sheet as they go along, others add their submissions at the end of the month. For many of us, having that accountability of documenting our progress is helpful in keeping us motivated. Seeing what the other members are accomplishing is also encouraging. We also have a doc with members’ blog and web addresses. We have a doc where members can post query letters or cover letters that they might want other members to critique. Around the second week of each month, I tally up the group’s subs from the previous month and post our progress on our Facebook page. So far, we have not had any competitions, but we do have a monthly drawing for a prize. In 2013, our small group sent out a total of 838 kid lit submissions – 409 of them were picture book manuscripts. Please contact me if you have questions. Sub Six is a closed Facebook group. If you would like to join, you can either friend me, Alayne Kay Christian, on Facebook with a message mentioning Sub Six, leave a comment on this blog page, or go to Facebook and ask to join on the Sub Six page.
