Hi Sarah

In addition to the good advice from Clare, there is a great little (and I do mean little) book by Scott Pack 'How to perfect your submission'. It's a 'warts and all' reveal of what to do and what not to do.

Hello guys I'm really struggling to get to grips with this group set up, can anyone help me in how to talk to everyone at once or get something setup to chat to the group members? 🙏

Well done for pressing send, Sarah. Good luck with your first submission. I'm afraid I would place myself firmly in the category of WAYB veteran. I think I still have the 2009 edition floating around somewhere. The only use I can really have for that is as a doorstop. Still, I'll get back to subbing one of these days. I'm enjoying writing far too much to worry it right now.
