Martin, Christine, Ed.; Bentley, Chantelle, Ed.
This directory provides 1700 listings and evaluations of poetry publishers--300 more than in the previous edition--along with complete submission and contact information. Listings include both domestic and international markets, from mass circulation and literary magazines to small presses and university quarterlies, and contain complete profiles of each organization. The directory also offers informative articles which look at market trends, including the increased interest in poetry and what it means for publishing opportunities, and which discuss the business of publishing, with information on cover letters, simultaneous submissions, and more. The directory also contains interviews with celebrated poets. The directory begins with general information, including a"how-to-use-this-book" section and then is divided into sections entitled: The Markets and Resources. Four focused indexes conclude the directory. (NKA)
