Today on Dare to Develop, we have Sarah Kay Love with us. Sarah used to work for The Knot and is an expert on all things publication and we will be chatting about how to get published yourself. We’re also going to talk about her daring leap to leave The Knot and what led her to that choice.
Were diving into curating submissions, what publications are looking for and how to nurture those relationships.
SARAH KAY LOVE DARES YOU:
Submit and email the editors! Try to start a connection because that is in my mind the scariest thing. We can all submit in different ways but I think daring to submit and see if that relationship can be formed is the biggest dare.
