When you turn in your final project URL to me, you need to do so via an email to me, as if you are the author of the work submitting it to the editor of the journal you have chosen. This is called a Submittal Email. (Well, that’s why I call it, anyways.) A submittal email includes the following information:
- Salutation to the editor (make sure you get their name/s right!)
- Indication of what you’re doing (submitting a webtext)
- title of your webtext
- URL/location of the webtext
- Summary/abstract of the webtext
- If it’s an unusual fit for the journal, explain why you think it’s a good fit.
- Any known issues/concerns about the webtext in its current form (usually things that you want editorial feedback on and/or known technical glitches that don’t interfere with the working of the piece but that you’re still working on and plan to fix) so that the editor will know to take those into consideration when reviewing the submission.
- A thank you for taking the time to review/respond to the piece.
- Valediction (Sincerely, Best, etc.)
This should be a GROUP email, sent by ONE of you, copying ALL of you, sent to ME. These emails are usually a paragraph or two (sometimes more) in length.
