The first part of my series on Poetry Submissions will be restricted to “how.” The next three parts will pertain to “where,” “getting organized,” and “craft.” This is rather backwards, I suppose, but let us assume that you have some poems that you feel are worthy of publication and simply need to know how to go about it. Hopefully this list will save you some time and answer your questions, too.
