Avoid a desk-reject for your article
Collates links to all eight blogposts in the how to avoid a desk-reject series
My series on how to avoid a desk-reject has been very popular over the years. However, it is hard to get an overview of the recommendations and to navigate between the blogposts. On this page I have therefore included links to all eight separate blogposts as well as all of their sub-sections. Above you will also find a playlist of seven videos dealing with each of the eight steps. It was created for the Middlesex University writing bootcamp, but will be useful for all.
