Open Submissions and Poetry Tips

Poetry Tips: Be Bold

Lately I have been pleased with the e-mails I have been receiving from poets who are polite yet bold enough to ask if I’d like to review their chapbook. So far they have all been men and I don’t know if that is coincidence or not but I’d like to extend the invitation to women to be bold and to men who haven’t taken the plunge. There is nothing wrong with finding a blog or site you enjoy that posts reviews and politely asking if the editor or creator would be willing to take the time to review and feature you on-line. It takes courage and some careful wording but I would encourage all of you to be bolder in your daily lives with poetry and all things outside of poetry. This week be bold! Ask for a raise (with quantifiable data printed out), ask for that job you’ve applied for instead of waiting for a response, ask for an editor or reader to review your work, this week, be bold!

Good luck to all who try it, please drop in again next week…
