There are so many ways to get your work in front of readers. If you want to go the traditional route, I recommend you get yourself a copy of the 2012 Poet's Market

It is the most complete resource available for poets who want to submit and publish their poetry--it now includes a subscription to Poet's Market online (the poetry section of, which is a great resource.

This book is for beginning poets who don't know how or where to start; experienced poets who need updated market information; instructors of creative writing, especially at the adult level; and libraries and writing organizations/centers.

Writing careers have been growing and changing with all the opportunities that the internet has offered to those who are willing to think outside the box.

You no longer have to be at the mercy of the publishing world, if you don't want to, submitting your query and waiting... and waiting... and waiting for some response.

Now, with the internet, you can be in charge of your own destiny! What are your writing goals? Becoming a writer means you may want to be open to any freelance writing opportunities that come your way. You might want to take a look at writers websites for some creative writing ideas and look for free online writing courses. There are freelance writing gigs out there. You just need to know where to look.

You can search out ezines that specialize in publishing peoms, or write one yourself. You can learn how with this great e-book, How To Be An Online Magazine Publisher.

You can also build a website that focuses on your poetry. And with a website, you have control over how your site looks, the way your poetry is displayed, and what type of poetry you'd like to publish. You can also allow other poets to post on your site if you'd like to. A website gives you complete control and can even turn into a money-making business!

Don't forget about poetry contests! They are a great way to get some feedback on your work as well as start your poetry writing business.  Yes, you can make some nice prize money!

These are some great magazines to have to stay up to date on poetry writing as well as gaining access to some great contests.

Take a look around your community for some opportunities. You never know who you might meet.

Why not take classes, check out your local newspapers, check out opportunities at your local bookstore, or join or start a writing group?

There are plenty of ways to connect, you just need to get creative and take action!
