The Best Deal for Poets Ever!

Some of you may have noticed the recent promotions for the National Poetry Month Collection, and I just wanted to take a moment to highlight it. Because it really is the best deal for poets that Writer's Digest has ever offered!

2015 Poet's Market

2015 Poet's Market

First off, it includes the 2015 Poet's Market, edited by yours truly, and filled with articles on the craft, business, and promotion of poetry--along with hundreds of listings for publishers of poetry, including print journals, online publications, book and chapbook publishers, contests, grants, and more!

Second, it includes the first volume of the Poem Your Heart Out anthology (published by Words Dance) that includes 30 prompts, 30 amazing poems, and space to write your own. Already own it? It makes a great gift for a poet friend!

Third, this collection includes a magnetic poetry kit, which--like poetry itself--is just plain fun! Check it out now.

Now I started off with these three items, because they're tangible, and because they retail separately for more than the entire price of the National Poetry Month Collection. But believe it or not, this collection actually gets better from here.

How can it get better?


Over the course of the past year, I've been busy recording poetry-related tutorials for the Writer's Digest Tutorials site, and I've done it with a plan of how everything would fit together in a way that one builds upon the other beginning with my Get Writing and Get Published series that includes:

  • Creating Poetry: How to Self-Prompt Poems tutorial
  • Re-Creating Poetry: How to Revise Poems tutorial
  • Build an Audience for Your Poetry tutorial

And I didn't stop there; I also recorded a Poetic Forms series that includes:

  • French Poetic Forms: Refrains, Rhymes, and Refrains tutorial
  • Asian Poetic Forms: Japanese, Korean, and More tutorial
  • Contemporary Poetic Forms: Newer Forms for Poets tutorial
  • More Contemporary Poetic Forms tutorial

Each of these tutorials alone cost nearly as much as the entire National Poetry Month Collection, so together it's easy to see how this bundle is an amazing deal. But there's even more!

Here's the "even more" that's included:

freewriting | life of a writer
  • Poetry Dictionary ebook
  • Writing the Life Poetic ebook
  • Creating Poetry ebook
  • Write Poetry Now ebook
  • Poetry: Formatting & Submitting Your Manuscript ebook excerpt
  • Get Your Poetry Published webinar

If you can find a better deal than that for less than $50, then wow! Because I've never seen Writer's Digest pull out all the stops like this before.
