What kind of poet are you? A brooding type who writes about storms and moors and darkness? Or a romantic who writes about pining and fairytales and heartbreak? Maybe you’re a nature-lover poet with stacks and stacks of poems about a single flower you walked past a few months ago (don’t @ me. It was a great flower.).
No matter the type of poetry you write, you probably fall within two camps: the poet who scribbles their stanzas in the dark under the covers and hides or burns the pages afterward, or the poet who wants EVERYONE to read their poetry.
If you write poetry in any of these groups, you’re probably super interested in getting your poetry published. But what does that mean? How do we get poetry published? How do we know when our poems are ready?
There are so many options for publishing and sharing your poetry, so let’s dig in.
