When editor, Robert Lee Brewer, asked me if I'd like to write a blurb for the 2012 Poet's Market I was thrilled! I've bought and used various copies of Poet's Market since about 1996. This is a wonderfully updated edition with essays on craft, seeking publication, and the process of marketing yourself to name a few. Speaking of marketing, I love how many of the article writers in this edition that I "know": at least virtually, including Collin Kelley, Sandra Beasley, and Jeannine Hall Gailey just to name a few.

It takes a lot of work for Robert to keep a print edition current, and he does the trick with this extremely helpful book. I do have to giggle a bit about how different my life is from the interview with me that he included, but I love reading back and seeing how much I still agree with that me. READ I always tell aspiring writers, READ.

The book also contains the very detailed lit mag (Referential makes its first appearance!), contest, book publisher etc lists included. I rather like the new format (the last issue I had still used the long paragraph style for entries versus this streamlined column look) of these alphabetized sections.

I look forward to recommending the Poet's Market to my friends and students. Great work, Robert!
