Writing for publication isn't easy, but getting published is an essential part of your professional development. Whether you're a novice or an experienced literacy writer, a K-12 teacher, or a university-level educator, you will benefit from the insights in this book.

Editors Shelley B. Wepner and Linda B. Gambrell have organized the book into four sections that offer guidelines for

getting started;

writing for journals, newspapers, and magazines;

writing and editing books; and

responding to revise-and-resubmit and rejection decisions.

Altogether, the 17 contributors present more than 80 guidelines to help you deal with the oftentimes puzzling and harrowing experiences of the publishing process. And they should know--collectively, their writing has appeared in 1,275 journal articles and 722 books.

Chapters also include highlights and closing thoughts to recap major themes, and author reflections from a wide range of respected, published authors to cheer you on as you struggle and succeed with your writing. Plus, an epilogue synthesizes the top 10 guidelines, or pearls of wisdom, that appear most frequently throughout the book.
