Somebody asked me the other day if I thought there was really any point to trying to get your poems published. This is a good question, particularly nowadays when you can just upload anything you want to social media.
I think there's a point to trying to publish your poems. In fact, several points. Here's some of them:
There are other reasons, but this should do for now. My advice is: submit your poems for publication! But be prepared for long response times and and unavoidable rejections.
The best way to avoid rejection is to send your best, fully polished work to journals you want to publish in with a simple, short cover letter (or email).
If you'd like some feedback on your poems, or want to get an edge in submitting to publications or contests, consider getting feedback, or a quick polish (or both) through one of the buttons below.
Or simply send an inquiry to firstname.lastname@example.org
I've also posted a lot of poetry tips, ideas, and exclusive access to my own poems over at my Patreon page. There's also unique pictures and access to my flash-fiction and occult writings. Please help me out by supporting me at Patreon!!!
Thanks so much!!
