Quiltcast #41 — Putting Yourself Out There, with Magazine Submissions
There’s a lot of patience and perseverance involved in submitting project and pattern ideas to magazine editors, but we have a few pointers for you too!
Get to know the magazine that you want to submit a pattern to, and what the editors are looking for in the submissions.
Include color and/or size options.
Think ahead, 6 to 12 months ahead.
A bio, of your past work.
Share a link or two, to your past work, online.
Look for submission information on the magazine website.
Expect a contract, with payment and shipping details.
The pattern maybe written for you, or you may need to write it. Check with the editor as you sign your contract.
You never know until you try!
We always welcome your feedback!
