Hi Caroline!

So glad this was helpful. Interesting too, that writers and editors are commenting on this from many directions. While editors and pubs understand this, interesting that writers are seeing it differently. One such writer said that he always publishes to his profile first.

When I revisited The Mission’s publications I found this excerpt explaining why pubs should only take unpublished drafts first even better. I’ve highlighted it for ease of location. Give a look and please let me know if this, too is helpful: https://medium.com/the-mission/submission-guidelines-the-mission-e4c4fc01a4a
