Welcome to Publishing: Class Rules

In elementary school, one of the first things you did when starting a new school year was go over the class rules. These rules were usually pretty simple, but they did a lot to keep the class running smoothly. So in the back-to-school spirit, I’m going to be sharing the class rules for publishing.

  1. Be nice to everyone.
  2. Work hard.
  3. Be patient.
  4. Read as much as possible.
  5. Have fun!

Pretty simple, right? Of course there are other things you should do. But at the end of the day, I think these are the basics . They make a world of difference.

Publishing is a hard business to be in. There are a lot of people trying to get in and get published, so etiquette is important. As simple as these rules may be, they go a long way to keeping publishing afloat. The rules are there to help you too.

So stick to them and you’ll have a great year (and career)!
