Hints:

Common mistakes include – “Failure to indicate target theme — not familiar with our needs. FIRST, mull over the upcoming themes; you’ll be surprised what plots might pop into your mind. Never submit a manuscript to THEMA unless you intended for your story or poem to relate to one of the themes. Always state-somewhere (in cover letter, on envelope, on first page of manuscript)-which theme you are targeting. Manuscripts without a theme designation are returned unread.”
