How to Help Your Manuscript Submission Stand Out--Being Part of a "Discourse Community"

I often refer clients and students to Jane Friedman, clearly one of the most savvy publishing gurus out there today.  Friedman is the former publisher of Writer's Digest magazine, and author of The Business of Being a Writer, a primer on publishing that every hopeful author needs to read.

This article, on why a "discourse community" is something you should know about, and how it  gives your manuscript submission the best possible chance with agents and editors, is a few years old but still very applicable to publishing today.  If you are planning to query agents in the new year, it's worth a read.

(If the link doesn't work, go to and search for her name.  And read some of their other excellent articles while you're there.)
