Your poetry, that is-- are you sending it out to magazines?
New Pages has a bi-weekly update on editors looking for submissions-- not to mention a nice page of reviews of literary magazines, and alphabetical lists of lit-'zines and alternate 'zines. If you tend toward the inspirational side, the Christian writers site has their own list of calls for submissions to look at. Or take a look at the Poets and Writers list of magazines.
For that matter, if you're too lazy to put a stamp on an envelope (or too poor-- we all know that story these days, alas), Louis Crew has a list of poetry publishers who accept electronic submissions. Or try a search on duotrope.
So-- do you submit? Why not?
And check out Nin Andrews, whose comments on publishing poetry (books) is here
Erica Dreifus's Practicing Writer newsletter also has a listing of contests and places to submit:
I do and try my hardest to help encourage younger (or other hesitant writers) to submit too. These are helpful links!
