Completed Poetry Manuscript Any Advice About Poetry Publishers?
I have received kind and thoughtful messages from readers that are interested in my poetry. I am touched that people like my poetry. I have completed a second poetry manuscript. All I can say is I am trying really very hard to get another poetry book published. I am also thinking beyond Canada. I don’t care if the publisher is American or Australian or British or whatever. I am looking across the globe!
I am not Margaret Atwood or Toni Morrison I don’t have the names of famous publishers on speed dial. All I can say is I have a few poetry manuscripts I have already submitted to publishers and I will look for more. Sometimes I wonder if I am doing something wrong? Why does it take editors so long to respond?
I submit poets via snail mail to literary journals and I still haven’t received any responses lately so I submit more poems.
I always make sure when I mail my work that I send self addressed stamped envelopes. The worst part about writing poetry is the waiting game some editors just don’t understand how frustrating it is for poets.
I completed a poetry manuscript and on Monday I plan to travel across Toronto and buy the 2009 Poet’s Market. The Poet’s Market I have heard it is a good resource for poets that are serious about getting their poems published. I called a few bookstores in Toronto and I know where to find the book. I hope this book can help me. I have also read Poets & Writer’s Magazine and I have a few good leads there. I had no idea how incredibly hard it is to get another poetry book published.
