Re: publishing anywhere

HI all
I am not an expert about publishing , but I sure learned from my first experience
getting an article published this year in School Arts. I rewrote the article
about 4 times and even with that had it proofread by 4 people- 3 of them English
teachers from my school. They all had different ideas. My first set of photos
sent in were not good enough ,but they liked the article so just asked me to
retake them.
I have to say I had minimal editing. Maybe the length of the article just worked
out ok.
You are right about the pay being low, but it was just thrill to see it
published! I sure didn't write it with money in mind. Summer is a good time to
start writing, because once the school year starts there is no time ( for me
