The Poetry Writers' Yearbook gives detailed listings of publishing companies, events and competitions. It provides reliable information on funding, self-publishing and how you can survive and thrive as a poet.
This new book includes a foreword by Andrew Motion and contributions from established poets George Szirtes, Andrew Motion, Colette Bryce and Carol Ann Duffy. Professional publishers at Faber, Blood Axe and Poetry Review give practical advice on getting your work in print. Hear from an Arvon Prize judge on how he selects prize winners, and from the founder of Apples and Snakes on performing your work. Packed with useful contacts and advice, the Poetry Writers' Yearbook brings poets and audiences together in a reliable and authoritative reference source.
• More than just a directory - includes detailed information on how to submit work, fees paid, deadlines for competitions and how to get funding.
• Includes contributions from leading poets and industry experts.
• Covers every aspect of the poetry scene today: publishers, magazines, agents, events, organisations, competitions, grants, performance poetry, creative writing courses and poetry groups.
This is the first outing of a new volume to the Writers' and Artists' yearbook collection, and I daresay, a welcome addition for all the budding poets in the world.
The previous volumes of the Writers' and Artists' yearbook had few pages devoted to the art of poetry, and clearly with an increased interest in poetry, this new book dedicated solely to poetry has been long overdue.
The Poetry Writers' yearbook is divided into just about every section possible to aid the poets' treacherous path to getting their work published and hopefully, getting paid for their efforts; to entering competitions, finding agents, poetry festivals and far more than any one poet could ever imagine; making this volume absolutely indispensable for every poet or 'wannabe' poet.
There may be many imitations in the future, but the original will never be bettered.
