Egrets Reading

Marketing Poetry

Marketing poetry can be very time-consuming and I find that I do it in spurts.

Recently, I’ve had poems returned from Strange Horizons ,Lone Star Stories, and Goblin Fruit – all thanks, but no thanks…

However, in the “win column”, I have three tanka and three haiku accepted for Hermitage, the Romanian haiku print journal, three cinquains accepted for the spring issue of Loch Raven Review, and a poem accepted for Poetic Diversity.

Oddly enough, recently it seems that I have better success READING my sf poetry than my haiku/short poetry, but have more luck finding homes for the mainstream short poetry.

Go figure.
