Increase Your Publication Chances

The best way to put the odds in your favor when submitting to any publication is to read the Submissions Guidelines for that magazine.  It's amazing how many people fail to do that.  Sometimes guidelines can seem tedious, but they are always there for a reason.

For example, The Western Online only publishes Western fiction, articles or artwork.  Yet we constantly get fiction submissions that aren't even Western stories.

The next step is to make sure your writing is good.  The best way to do that is to follow the advice of the great Elmore Leonard.  Numbers three and four are especially important as they are by far the most noticeable.
