    Novice Publishing Question

    Discussion in 'Publishing' started by washboardalex, Jul 8, 2011.

    Hey Guys, I've just had a short story published and the publisher wants me to write a short "exert" to be published alongside it. What is this, and what sort of information should go into it?

    Did he mean "excerpt"?

    Possibly, but then why would I have to write it? Don't they just pick which part they like then and copy-paste it?

    I think what they probably want is a paragraph about who you are, not an excerpt.

    Look at their magazine, and see what other contributors have with their stories.
