When writers don’t know how to submit to an editor it’s often because they don’t think like editors. Writers think about their reasons for writing something. At the submission point, editors do not care what your reason for writing something was. They don’t care that you want to encourage children to obey their parents. They don’t care that you want to share with kids the joys of playing outside. They don’t care what motivated you to write the thing. At some point they might care. That kind of extra information is interesting. But at the query or cover letter stage, editors only care about whether they want to buy this piece. So what kinds of things will influence whether an editor will want to buy something? Let’s explore that in today’s episode.
