An Interview with a Poet and a Resource for Publishing Poetry

Since November of 2012, I've been working on a little project called With Five Questions, a blog where I post five-question interviews with writers, artists, entrepreneurs, and more. I occasionally do other sorts of posts, too, but the majority of the posts are interviews. I conduct the interviews over email, and it's always fun to see the responses people come up with to the questions I've written for them. The other day, I posted one of my very favorite interviews, with Laura-Marie Taylor, a poet in Sacramento who has been making zines for many years. I hope you'll check it out. If you're at all interested in zines, I think you'll appreciate Laura-Marie's; they are thoughtfully written and carefully made.

If you're a poet looking for places to publish your work, I happened upon a listing the other day for The Poetry Market Ezine, which is a free email newsletter with lists of magazine publishers who are accepting submissions of poetry. I remember receiving this list years ago when I was following a few different writing-related Yahoo groups, and it's good to know it's still in operation. It's an announcement-only list, so you only receive a couple messages per month from the list owner.

Also, I've just opened registration for the online poetry writing workshop I'm offering this summer. It starts on the first day of summer, June 21, and runs through July 21. There's more info about the poetry class here.
