Choice Cycle 3: Living the Life of a Writer
Day 10: Submitting writing to the real world
Challenge: Seek out any young authors’ competitions in your state or local organizations that are sponsoring writing contests. Be sure to read your union paper, teacher magazines, or literary websites to check for submission calls, which you can pass along to your students.
How can you match your students with appropriate real-world publishing opportunities without doing all of the legwork for them?
What will you do to take the leap and get your own writing published so you can serve as a mentor for your students as they go down the path to publishing their own work?
