Title: question about FACES submission
Post by: Gbug on August 23, 2019, 10:17 AM
The FACES submission guidelines lists out what to include, but doesn't say whether or not they prefer it all in the body of the email, or as an attachment. Does anyone have information about this?  I've read of places that will just delete your email if it comes with unwanted attachments. I have a query, outline, and whatnot almost ready to go, and worked way too hard on this to throw it all away by sending it incorrectly! 

Thanks in advance!

Since they don’t specify, I would put my cover letter in the email body and attach the outline and bibliography as one doc.

That's a good idea. Do you think the writing sample would be a separate doc too, or should I throw them all on one attachment?   I'm thinking one, but not sure.

Ginbug, I second dina. However, the writing sample should be a separate attachment from the outline. Good luck! V.
