So, Who Publishes Books of Poetry These Days?

So, Who Publishes Books of Poetry These Days?

Three suggestions:

(1) Seattle 7 is right. The place to begin is Poet's Market or Writer's Market. I would only add that because these are published annually, you can usually find a used one from a recent year in a good used bookstore (much more inexpensively). These publishers don't change all that much from one year to the next. That will give you a copy to browse. Then when you make some decisions, you can use the public library copy to double-check.

(2) Regrettably, most poetry books these days are published by university presses or in presses influenced by poets associated with "creative writing" programs in colleges and universities. Same is true for awards, criticism, and literary reviews. If you study in such a program, they will give you guidance on publishing and related matters. However, this has resulted over the past half century or so in poetry that is somewhat more oblique and academic than appeals to the general public.

This is changing. When Billy Collins was US Poet Laureate, he made a public appeal for "accessible" poetry and edited two anthologies (Poetry 180: A Turning Back to Poetry; and 180 More: Extraordinary Poems for Every Day) that recognized such poetry. These books grew out of readings recorded to be played over high-school intercoms--not for study, just for fun, one poem a day for each of the 180 days of a school year.

You should probably browse in the library and bookstores to find publishing outlets that welcome poetry of the sort that you write. (Sometimes you even pick up ideas that help with your poetry writing!)

(3) Finally, it must be said that most publishers of poetry books expect their authors to have been previously published in literary reviews. There are hundreds of these, but still getting in one of them ain't easy.

Of course, another alternative is to publish you own poetry, but that's another question -- one that has been asked and answered many times in Y!A. If you're interested, you might do a search. One example ("Whats the best way to get my poems published?") is at the location given below.

Good luck! And happy 2007!
