Thanks, Geoff. There is some good advice here. I taught a class at the CCPL about publishing poems in magazines, and while a lot of the audience bought it, a lot of poets were like, "Oh that's too hard. I'll just publish it myself." And then they did: with typos and awful graphics. Self-publishing is fine, but if you yourself are the only person publishing you, ask yourself why that is. Even Emily Dickinson, the unfairly rejected, too unpublished poet, had 12 poems published in her lifetime. Work it, people.


The poet doesn't invent. He listens. ~Jean Cocteau
