Very few poets make a living from writing poetry, but that doesn’t mean you can’t be successful. This guidebook will help beginning poets work their way into the poetry scene. Inside, you will find encouraging arguments about why your poetry is important, information on the nuts and bolts of chapbook publishing, tips on developing your reputation as a writer, and how to submit your writing to literary magazines and journals.

Focus your energy on the actions that count as you begin to make a name for yourself as a poet.


Anthony Chalk is a poet who has found financial success – $150,000 from sales and royalties over ten year – and personal satisfaction – one of his poems was published next to Al Purdy’s. Ten years ago, Anthony couldn’t find a comprehensive resource for beginning poets in Canada. This guidebook, he hopes, will help others starting out, no matter what country they live in.
