So, I joined Writing Class by Windy Ariestanty this afternoon and it was really useful. She is an editor in Gagasmedia, one of big publisher in Indonesia, and these are some things I can share with you.
Instead of use handwriting, type your manuscript before you send it to publisher. It will help editors to read it.
Attach your synopsis, so editors can find the big picture of your story.
Give some reasons why the company have to publish your story. Show them the strengths of your works.
Package your manuscript nicely.
Make sure you put your name, address, e-mail and contact numbers. Don’t let your works leave unknown.
Create the titles! That’s a writer’s duty. Not publisher.
Okaay, that’s it for tonight. I will post some more tomorrow.
