2015 Poet’s Market: What It Is and How to Buy It

When I started writing poetry more than 20 years ago, I didn’t have ambitions of publication or poetic greatness, but I did have a target audience: originally, a girl to impress. Later on, I became my own target audience. Eventually, I yearned to share my words with others and had no idea how to...

Rabbit Season/Duck Season/Submission Season

I used to love that Looney Tunes cartoon where Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck would argue over rabbit and duck season until Bugs fooled Daffy into saying, “It’s duck season. Duck season!” And then, he’d get shot, and say something like, “I hate you,” to Bugs–who’s so smart, yet always (always) takes a wrong turn...
