Duosuma® Duotrope's Submission Manager

Guide to Getting More Submissions on Duosuma

Every publishing project has its own unique audience of readers and submitters. A lot of the time when a publication doesn't get many submissions, it's simply because people don't know enough about it. They need your help to find out what, when, and how to submit.

First things first: Set up your links

If you don't link to your Duosuma submission manager page, people won't be able to find it. At minimum, you need to link to your public Duosuma page from the project's official website, especially the submission guidelines page*, and anywhere you request submissions.

To make it easy, we provide HTML code and graphics that you can use here:

Linking Instructions (HTML and graphics)

Bonus Points: Polish the Submission Guidelines page on your website
We recommend that you read our Advice for Editors. The second section of that article in particular covers our advice for your submissions guidelines page.

Take it up a notch: Promote your calls for submissions

If your project uses Twitter, Facebook, or other social networks, be sure to also promote your calls for submissions there. A simple shout out to remind people you are accepting submissions can work wonders.

Here's an example from Winning Writers on Twitter:

Be sure to link your posts to your main submission guidelines page (that also has a link to your Duosuma public page). Adding a graphic is always a nice touch, but it isn't strictly necessary.

Ask for help: We've got your back!

If you are still not getting enough submissions, you can request a review of your submission calls. We'll do a thorough review of your website and how you've set up your calls for submissions, and let you know if we have any recommendations. (Active Duosuma accounts only. Please make the request from your Manage Projects, Calls, and Dates page.)
