ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
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.
