Manuscript Formatting and Submission Do’s and Don’ts

(Avoiding Simple Mistakes That Cause Rejection)

If your manuscript is formatted or submitted incorrectly, chances are you will be rejected. Learn the ABCs of formatting articles, poetry, short stories, and different types of books. You will also learn how to submit digital and/or hard copies of your manuscript properly, as well as find the right publisher or agent who will take a serious look at the manuscript once received.



LeeAnne Krusemark is the founder and managing partner of Krusemark, Grinnell and Associates. She is a nationwide speaker on the topics of entrepreneurship and publishing. Her in-person lectures have been offered at more than 200 facilities nationwide, including Purdue University, and she has been asked to speak at Senate-sponsored business conferences as well as for the Department of the Army. She is also a former journalist, editor, and managing editor of newspapers, as well as an author of countless magazine articles and several books, some of which can be found on Amazon. LeeAnne also assists authors with editing to make sure their writing is marketable, and then represents them as an agent. The inspiration she gives to others has even been compared in writing to Oprah!



I hope to see you there.
