This is probably because book publishers are going out of business, but it was a shock to see how little of the Writer's Market is dedicated to them.

But what else is there? A collection of trashy mags looking for bad poems to publish, and laying down guidelines to what they like as fixed and cowing as the laws Moses got on the mountain. Most of these listings have 2 things in common. They all declare they will take nothing but great poems. Apparently that's one law it's safe to break. And most demand that you buy at least one copy of their zine to see what they want. As most of these zines charge $10 an issue, and you'd like to mail 100 submissions this month. See?

But there are lots of listings, lots of what and how to info (which is indispensable), it's well put together and easy to use.

This yearly guide to markets for poetry is my annual birthday present to my brother. He uses it constantly. The book gives guidelines for submissions, the type of publication, type of poetry considered, and other salient bits of information (such as pay rates or no pay) so necessary for successful submissions. Worth every penny if you're serious about getting your poetry "out there".

This is a wonderful reference book for marketing your poetry. A must tool if you are wanting to share your poetry with the public. I was very pleased with this purchase.

This book was some help but daunting. Not easy to get published seems to be message. Good to keep as a constant resource.

Just got my 2011 edition in the mail. Along with being an easy to use and clear reference for poetry publications and what type of work they're looking for, it always includes other need to know information like submission format. But beyond that, I'm always tickled to read informative pieces about...poetry! Whether it's a clear explanation of how to write a successful haiku or ruminations on the differences between good and great poetry, I always find fresh articles that inspire and delight.

Have you bought it yet? If you are intending to be a published poet, and, like me, no one has heard of you, you need "2011 Poet's Market."

As a poet often writing with religious overtones, I need to know which publications, secular and religious, are open to such poetry. Some do not want to see any sort of religious poetry, and others are open, but with limits, and others welcome it. This book helps me avoid wasting my time, their time, and postage. By using this book, everyone is happy.

I have used this guide successfully to be published. It is thorough, packed with info. The articles found between sections help me see the process more clearly, strategies and what to avoid.

Useful are the icons indicating if they pay, or won awards, etc. You'll find the icons essential, as you determine which publishers pay, which are new additions to the guide, which are open to newer writers, etc. For example, you can avoid sending too many poems (and save a few stamps) by knowing a publisher only wants to see five poems. Or, who will accept submissions via e-mail? That's here.

Occasionally, as with the entry for "Pinyon", an annual published out of Mesa State College in Colorado, the advice is less useful. They say, "Send us your best work!" I am not certain why I would do otherwise, but there you have it. More often than not, though, editors recognize that inclusion will result in poetry meeting their needs, and careful think through their entry.

Also, if you are looking to get into the religious market, Poet's Market is just a start. It is decent, but only covers the largest publishers in this genre. You should also buy Sally Stuart's "Christian Writer's Market Guide," a very similarly structured book, the definitive guide for Christian writers.

I fully recommend the "2011 Poet's Market."

It's been a long time since I bought this thing. Magazines and the internet are inadequate. This is about the only resort. All these failed poets, MFA graduates, self-appointed critics - all turned publishers forthrightly tell you what you "should" and "should not" write - tell you in no uncertain terms and rarely nicely - clearly there is no market for what is called traditional or formal poetry - the whole thing reeks of the emperor's new clothes - but where else can you go? I don't know. My issue came yesterday and I just looked through it. Nothing about it has changed a bit. With just a few exceptions, the magazines etc. listed in this market last about a year and then are gone forever - and with no exceptions they publish trash - considering what gets accepted, god knows what their standards are - or how unbelievably terrible what they reject is - it's Lifshin's world - and you won't go far without finding her name (virtually on every page) - read what she writes/wrote and take hope -
