... have a read of these two great pieces on publishing your poems ....
Roy Marshall on the editor's view of of publishing poetry at http://roymarshall.wordpress.com
and Jo Bell on getting your poems organised at https://belljarblog.wordpress.com
Both are full of common sense and logic which is just what I need to help me on the day I spend in my poetry office. That, of course, is almost always the day I'd much rather be elsewhere.
Like today - its sunny, the frost is slowly disappearing and the mountains look fantastic ... so its going to be hard to be updating my poetry spreadsheet. But I'm now going there right now with Roy and Jo's words by my side, not forgetting a cup of the very best coffee.
