Submitting to knitting magazines and publications can be a terrifying task. It's a great way to push one's knitwear design career forward but is facing all of the rejection worth it?

As someone who has both experienced being the submitter and the editor, I want to share my insights and the behind-the-scenes of what is going through the mind of an editor, as well as how you can change your outlook on the submission process so you can make it a win-win situation every time.

Last month I took an international trip to Melbourne, Australia for Chelsea Fitch's Fiber Boss College LIVE event as a speaker! In my first ever speaking gig, I talked about how I use challenges in my business, the theory of challenges and then dove into the practice of setting one up.

However, I'm not going to talk about my panel in this episode (that's for a future one) but instead the takeaways I got from the other presenters, Chelsea and Claire. Listen to this week's episode for my top 3 main lessons that I learned from Fiber Boss College Live!
