Learn what to do to get your poetry published in literary journals and other publications. Two experienced poet/editors and one relative newcomer to the poetry scene will address questions related to WHEN, WHERE, HOW, and WHAT to submit, with focus on how to get your work out in the world without stress, fear of rejection, or waste of valuable writing time. When is your work ready to submit? Where should you send it? What is the most efficient way to get the work out? What goes into a submission? Sample cover letters, lists of how-to’s, and website resources will be provided, and an inventory of resource books and sample literary journals will be available for review.

For seven years, CB Follett was publisher and co-editor, with Susan Terris, of the highly acclaimed Runes, A Review of Poetry, an annual themed anthology. Her Arctos Press has published 16 poetry collections. Follet and Terris have both authored several collections and published hundreds of poems in literary journals.

An MFA student in her final semester, Becky Foust is the author of two chapbooks published last year and a full length book to be released in 2010 by Many Mountains Moving Press, and her poems are widely published. Rebecca Foust PO Box 399 Ross, CA 94957 www.rebeccafoust.com
