As some of you may know, I will be editing the 2010 edition of Poet’s Market (Writer’s Digest Books). Anyway, I have a pretty good idea of the interviews I’d like to include in the book, but I’d like to hear pitches for other possible articles.
If you’re a poet with a great idea for a craft or business of poetry article, please send it my way at firstname.lastname@example.org. Put “Pitch for 2010 Poet’s Market” in your subject line so that I can easily identify it. (Do NOT pitch me in the blog comments, please. It’s just a lot easier to manage in my work email account.)
I don’t need anything too fancy in the pitch, but I do want to have a clear idea of what you’re pitching, who you are, and why you’re the person to write the piece.
My goal is to make most (if not all) of my assignments by the end of this week; so, don’t sit around crafting the perfect query–if your idea sounds interesting, I’ll probably bounce ideas your way.
