Hey everyone! I watched the video on SVS about getting freelance work and the importance of creating a mailing list and sending out postcards. I've heard this advice many times, so I went ahead and started one of my own.
I noticed that while collecting addresses of publishing companies that many state to send art submissions in a separate way, and it is usually mentioned after the instructions of sending manuscripts. I imagine that those sending art submissions would also be looking for the same work as those sending postcards, so what is the difference in these two methods? The instructions for sending artwork seem much more detailed than sending a postcard and I've never heard of anyone doing this. Do publishing companies really prefer this, or do they just prefer a simple postcard that is easier to keep around?
