write queary letters to some publishers who have published work similar to yours. search for "queary (however you spell it!) letters" on Google or somewhere.
Good luck!

Now...

You write :D

We all have one thing in common on these boards, we want to write and we all want to get noticed by some super duper publishing company! And, the only way to make that dream a reality is to practice- to WRITE WRITE WRITE! :D And, to share our writing with others, such as our family, friends and heck even all of our cyberfriends here at Writeit! - It always helps to get other's opinions (and you will ALWAYS be surprised at what they single out in your story(ies) for revision :))

Hope this helped... (lol somewhat at least ;))

Best of Luck!

Peronally:

i dunno.

But, (and i know this is easier said than done) I would start local. Get noticed around town (unless you live in NYC or somewhere big). Start with your school, and then like a newspaper, and just work your way up. PEOPLE WILL NOTICE!!


Just find a way. If you want it bad enough, you will.

Although I have yet to be published I know a lot about the market. The first thing you need to do is visit your local bookstore or library and either buy or preferably borrow a copy of the Children's Writers Market. This book lists publishing companies for books and magazines plus what is required to submit for each publishing company. Also this book which comes out annually contains information about writing cover letters, query letters as well as listing for agents. Tip you don't need an agent to get published. Also Stone Soup publishes kids stories and poems but you have to be under 13. Check out the website for more details.

Get the book the young writer's guide to getting published by Kathy Henderson. It is really good. You might have to get an old edition though(like 2001). That was the latest I could find. Hope to see your work.

Well I would suggest writing a lot so your writing keeps getting better and better. :). Also I would try to get myself noticed a tiny bit by entering a few contests online or out of it. You could also get account on websites where publishers might see I'm on a certain one but I'm not exactly sure if I'm allowed to share the link on it...... You could also mail your books to different publishers.
