By Julia Vanderbilt
Publish Your Original Poems and Earn Writer's Royalties
Publishing your poetry is a lot
easier to do when you have a good
idea as to what the Poetry Publishers
are looking for.

At a recent Writer's Conference,
Victoria Moore advised new
"There are so many great
magazines and poetry journals on the
market today that publish poetry,
that it can be challenging to know
what each individual poetry

publisher is looking for. But Poetry
Publishers all share one common
need when it comes to
poetry: they all want good, original
poetry that will fit in well with what
their readership enjoys

To make it easier for writers, most
magazines and poetry journals will
tell you exactly
what type of poetry
they publish
, and what type of
specific poems they are currently
looking for
Although most Poetry Publishers will have
their own unique poetry publishing needs,
here are
Victoria Moore's four basic
guidelines to help you
publish your

1. Poems about real life and issues that
people can relate to are generally easier to
get published than deep, philosophical
poetry, unless you intend to submit it to
scholarly publications for consideration.

2. Poetry that deals with specific themes,
such as relationships, faith or love, will
naturally appeal to a large readership.
3. Short poems are generally easier to
publish than long poems, simply because
print publishers have limited space to
work with.  

4. Most importantly ... be original.  When
you submit your poems to Poetry
Publishers, make sure your poems are
original and unique in every way, if you
want to
get published.
