The art of writing for publication
Why do some writers see their work published regularly, while others - whose contributions could be just as valuable - toil away with limited success? Often the difference is that published writers understand what editors are looking for and know how to increase the chances that their work will be accepted for publication.
Kenneth Henson knows what editors want. For the past ten years he has surveyed editors to find out what they are looking for in manuscripts and the most common factors that disqualify the manuscripts they reject. These survey results offer unique insights into the editorial process - information you'll find invaluable as you plan and develop your own professional articles and book ideas.
As the author of many books, articles, and funded grant proposals, Dr. Henson has developed a system for shaping his ideas into manuscripts and proposals that satisfy editors and funding institutions. His straightforward, results-oriented approach will prove useful to readers wishing to improve or increase their production of published works.
Here you'll find practical tips and techniques for every aspect of the writing and publishing process, from a systematic method that will help you identify publishable topics in your area of expertise to suggestions that will help you target the most appropriate journals or book publishers once you've selected your topic. You'll also find up-to-date information on proper procedures and formats for submitting manuscripts... models for query and cover letters... a system for tracking your submissions and published work... helpful suggestions for improving your writing so it's more attractive to editors... plus little-known ways to increase an article's chances of acceptance.
