It can seem like there are secret rules to getting a poem published, or some way to go about publication that no one has mentioned. This workshop equips you with information, tools, resources, and skills to use in seeking publication. You will leave it with a cover letter, ideas for journals to submit to, a plan for responding to rejection and acceptance, and ideas for how to pursue publication going forward. This workshop is geared toward intermediate poets who have at least 10-20 reasonably polished poems that they’d like to see published.
