Yeah so I'm a really awesome writer/poet (not bragging people actually tell me this and people like to read my writings) and I'm wondering how in the world do I get published. I am only in high school so...yeah. However, I no I want to write when I get older but think I could get published now if I had any idea how the writing industry worked. I am (according to many people I no) good enough creatively to get published (my grammer isn't so hot but that is what editors are for.) I have no clue where to start. Help would be greatly appreciated if you no anything about the writing industry. Thanks.

I doth not know.


But I hope this thread doesn't turn into a bunch of people being resentful of you being/claiming to be a good writer :-/

What he said. Oh, by the way, if you're gonna be a writer, avoid spelling know "no."

First book I see published with internet writing gets set aflame.

I know how to do this, and it's pretty hard.

Buuut, PM some of your stuff. If you really are good I'll help you. Being a writer, I'm very anal.
Poor advice.

There's always stuff in HS that'll publish your stuff.
Ask your english teacher.

i bet my poetry and writing is better than yours.


and you could submit some of your work to your school newspaper or something along those lines, and then get yourself out there publically and move onto your city paper. thats what i did.

my school has this thing called "the lit mag" where students submit their works of literature, obviously. and ya, mine pwned and i was recomended by the head of the english department to the city paper. of course, it did help tons that i was in my schools news papery class thing. i since forget the name of the course but ya know it was like publications, editing, columbs, everything.


chea boi.


EDIT:

oh, and if you think grammer isnt a must in literature, you my friend, are a moron. stop writing your roses are red bullshit poetry and your cat in the hat stories and shoot yourself.


being able to work around the language and create those advances parts of speech is everything. having an understanding of proper use of language (grammer) is essential when you want to write deeper, more powerful works.

Okay I might post some of my stuff tomorrow. I don't have my better writings typed out all of the way yet but tomorrow I'll try to get something up. Also on the "No" thing it is so annoying because when I have it right people are like you have no wrong and when I have it wrong they are like that is right. So I just go with no.

How the hell are you such a good writer when you don't KNOW the difference between no and know?

When you post, make sure you do it in the S&L forum. It'll be better recieved there.

And Hell, while you're there, check my stuff out.

I shall explain the no/Know situation for you my friend.

I no that you should already no this, but there is know way I can let the confusion go on any longer.

Just reverse all the "no and know" in that sentence and you should be golden.

Now there is know way you can be confused.

are you in the uk? if so, get the writers and artists yearbook.

btw guys it probably helps that he's confident (or arrogant), cos most writers get turned down by at least half a dozen publishers before they get accepted, if at all.
