The Writer Mama Back-to-School Giveaway 2009, Day Twenty-Six

poetsmkt2Welcome to day twenty-six of The Writer Mama Back-to-School Giveaway!

Today’s giveaway, Poet’s Market by Robert Lee Brewer (Writer’s Digest Books), is about getting poetry published.

Poets of all skill levels have turned Poet’s Market for more than two decades for all the information they need on publishing poetry. Whether you’re targeting magazines and journals or book/chapbook publishers, the 2010 Poet’s Market gives you up-to-date contact and submissions information for more than 1,000 listings. This new edition includes:

  • Features on the realities of poetry publishing, mistakes to avoid, identifying scams, and promoting your work.
  • Articles on translating poetry, electronic poetry, chapbooks, poetry readings, and more.
  • Information on workshops, organizations and online resources that help poets perfect their skills and network with fellow poets and editors.
  • Thorough indexes to make choosing the best potential markets easier.
  • And—new this year—access to all Poet’s Market listings in a searchable online database!

Author Bio:

Robert Lee Brewer is the editor of Writer’s Market, Writer’s Market Deluxe Edition and ARL Brewer published poet, he covers poetry topics at his Poetic Asides poetry blog Brewer also speaks at writers’ conferences and writes articles for Writer’s Market and Writer’s Digest.

If you are new to the giveaway, please read “Da Rules.”

Especially since folks have been getting, ahem, a little long-winded lately. This is funny because at the beginning of the giveaway folks weren’t writing long enough. Now I can’t get them to stop writing. 🙂

Please keep it between 50-200 words. Do you best!

Today’s question is…

Give me 50 – 200 words in stream of consciousness that describe what writing feels like to you. Stream of consciousness means you don’t have to use any punctuation…unless you want to. Have fun!

Give me the goods in 50-200 words, please. :)

Before you go! WE HAVE A CAUSE TO RAISE MONEY FOR THIS YEAR! Please read the story about the Applin family here and consider making a small contribution at some point during the giveaway. We’re aiming for $100/day collectively. Please help us help the Applin family adopt two beautiful children from Russia. :)
