I’ve done a lot of research on how to publish novels (because that is my main goal) yet, I also write poetry and would like to (if possible) publish a collection of poetry.
I could go online and ask, but I thought I’d start here with you guys
So, how to go about publishing a book of poetry?
Is there like a querying process? Do you get agents? Or, do you just send your MS to a publisher directly and hope they pick it up?
What about self-pub? What are the odds that you could become a successful poet through self-pub?
Or, is it actually more effective to try to get published in a literary magazine and hope for the best out of that? Like, maybe one day a publisher might find you? For this question, I must mention that I live in Japan so I would have to find an international magazine or one that accepts manuscripts from outside. I have not had very good luck with searching for an international magazine, actually.
Thanks in advance for any information
