1. A listing of journals that print poetry with some guidance as to the type of poetry they print including a few poems.
Journals tell us to read a few copies before we submit, but it is impossible to read every journal and you can waste a great of deal of money buying journals that are not right for your work. It is such a hit and miss for new poets. You see editors complain that they receive too many submissions that do not fit their journal. It seems like it would be a win-win for everyone if more of this information was available to poets. Journals would have the fabulous luxury of receiving more of the best poems for their publication and poets would save scarce money and time.
I know there are services that will place your poems and Poet's Market gives a little of this information, but it would be nice to get a more detailed guide.
What do you wish for? Maybe, there are some people reading who can grant our wishes!
Do you wish there were more poem starters available in publications for poets?
Would you like to see more ranking and reviews on writing workshops and retreats?
Would like an calendar posted that lists contest deadlines and poetry fesitvals?
What are your greatest poetic wishes?
Bippy Boppity Boo! My the world of poetry shine on you!
