When I first started writing, I asked a friend who’d had some success in it how to know what each individual publisher was looking for. How did I know what they wanted to read? She told me about Open Calls.
Recently, the amazing Hailey Edwards posted on her blog about an open call at a publisher I like. This gave me the idea (thanks Hailey) that perhaps I would start, every once in a while, posting open calls from publishers I know so that if people are looking for some they can find them on my blog.
**Big Disclaimer here. I do not have the time to publish every Open Call on the Internet. So I’m going to be limited by here to publishers I know or that my friends have told me about. Even then I may not do every publisher I know. It’ll be random. But I call this blog Rebecca’s Random Musings, what can I say?**
