Oh My Goodness…Sub It Club One Year Anniversary

Oh My Goodness…Sub It Club One Year Anniversary

Although I am still very new at this writing gig, I have learned something that is obviously not new. And that’s the outpouring of support and opportunity out there for writers.

I recently participated in ReviMO hosted by author Meg Miller just this weekend and completed my last writing prompt for Start the Year Out Write 2014 hosted by author Shannon Abercrombie. I will begin 12X12 with author Julie Hedlund soon and today I found Sub It Club created by Heather Ayris Burnell, Dana Carey and Lisha Cauthen when pursuing the SCBWI (Society for Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators) boards. WOWZA.

I think I’ve come full circle! Writing tips, revision tips, and submission tips covers a huge chunk of the creative process. I want to participate in Sub It Club because although I like to write, and really do not mind spending the time to revise, I need to learn when to stop and submit. After all the hard work of writing and revising, my goal is to learn to pitch and query to sub it.

For the club’s first anniversary they have a great one year anniversary giveaways. Writer’s can enter to win a submission opportunity to Ammi-Joan Paquette of Erin Murphy Literary Agency, Karen Grencik of Red Fox Literary, or Mira Reisberg of Hummingbird Literary or a first 15 pages plus query letter critique from agent Sean McCarthy, a Query Package Critique from author Kristine Asselin, or a First Five Pages critique from author Veronica Bartles.

Let’s do this!

  1. Hi Keila! I just came across this nice post. I’m so glad you joined us at Sub It Club! I too have found it hard to stop and submit my work. There’s just so much to write, and sometimes it seems that submitting work just takes a whole different part of the brain. It seems to get easier the more you do it though. 🙂
    See you in the club!

  2. Hi Keila…looks like we are shadowing each other.:) I also did ReviMo and Start the Year off Write…and participating in 12×12. Sub It Club is a great site…sharing important info and lots of support and encouragement. There’s another similar one…Sub Six…Alyane Christian hosts that…you might want to check that out if you are not on overload already.:)

    • Oh my goodness Vivian, you are a writing animal. I am truly overwhelmed, but guess in a good way. 🙂 I just had to do something else creative other than writing which is why I decided to dress Phyllis!

      Yes, see you around the different groups.
