Do you want to wade into the waters of publication but haven’t known how? Are you wondering which journals might accept your work? Are you stymied by the rules of contests, cover letters and simultaneous submissions? Or maybe you have tried to send out your poems, to no avail, or want to take your publications to the next level. In this seminar, Arielle will demystify the world of poetry publication, from navigating through the vast sea of literary magazines to preparing poems for submission to keeping good records of it all to what, if any, money there is to be made.
Although we won’t be evaluating individual poems by participants, there will be lots of solid, clear information given out about the business end of poetry, and plenty of time for questions and answers.
