Hi, all, and happy Tuesday!
Question for you: Who’s planning on going to AWP this year? Leave a comment or reply to this email to let me know, please! I want to see all my friends and meet all my future friends!
And here’s what I have for you today:
Re: cover letters
Re: where I’ve been submitting
Re: what I’ve been reading
Someone on Twitter recommended that I talk about cover letters and their etiquette. For anyone else with similar questions, please note that I talk about them in detail in my e-book Publishing Poems: An Easy Guide. You can buy it for $10 on my website and will be immediately emailed the download link.
I wrote it to kind of democratize some wisdom I’ve gained over the years, making it easily accessible and affordable. The alternative—if you desire to be walked-through every step or have a disposable income—is to pay me $50 an hour to tutor you on getting poems published. Needless to say, buying the e-book is a lot cheaper.
And, of course, there’s always the option to figure things out by trial-and-error, which is how I gained all the insight I have (for whatever that’s worth!).
Someone else recommended that I talk about personification. I did so a little bit back in May, along with metaphors and similes, and all three often intersect. Here are the links to those posts:
Journals I’ve submitted to in October:
The New Southern Fugitives
Mud Season Review
What I read this week:
Fieldglass, Catherine Pond
Hinge, Molly Spencer
Notes on Conceptualisms, Robert Fitterman & Vanessa Place
Communism is up there and we are down here but it is happening now, Olive Blackburn
Between Grammars, Danielle Vogel
Because I only have so much space, I can’t keep most of the books I read. So if you want some new reading materials (and to help fund my book-buying habits), please consider buying 5 books for $30.

That’s all for today! Have a good week!
