This is one of my favorite posts to do each year: to announce the updated edition of another Poet’s Market!
Poet’s Market 2017 is the 30th edition in the annual series, and the 8th edition under my watch. As with all previous editions of Poet’s Market, my goal was pretty simple: Make this the best edition yet, whether it’s through the articles in the front of the book or maxing out the listings for publishers, publications, and contests in the back of the book.
There’s no better tool for making it happen than Poet’s Market 2017, which includes hundreds of publishing opportunities specifically for poets, including listings for book publishers, publications, contests, and more. These listings include contact information, submission preferences, and—when offered—payment information.
In addition to the listings, Poet’s Market offers all-new articles devoted to the craft and business of poetry, featuring advice on the art of finishing a poem, the anatomy of a poetry book, ways to get the most out of your writing residency, homegrown promotions, and more!
You also gain access to:
- A one-year subscription to the poetry-related information and listings on WritersMarket.com.
- Lists of conferences, workshops, organizations, and grants.
- A free digital download of Writer’s Yearbook, featuring the 100 Best Markets.
Sounds great, right? But there’s more…
The book also includes a free webinar titled “Creative Ways to Promote Your Poetry” that is taught by yours truly.
The webinar “Creative Ways to Promote Your Poetry” examines how creativity for a poet should not be limited to poems—creativity can also be applied to the business of promoting poetry and growing an audience. This webinar includes how to get started, what the most effective “common” strategies are for promoting poetry, specific examples of poets who applied creativity to their promotion efforts, and more!
Is there an e-book version of Poet’s Market?
