“The vitality of poetry right now…is at a pitch high.”



 “I don’t think it makes someone less of a poet not to be published. They are still a poet. So, there’s publishing and then there’s poetry.”

Read: A poetry publisher on the math of rejection – “Every year, Jeff Shotts, executive editor of Graywolf Press, sorts through thousands of poetry submissions — and rejects about 99 percent of them. It’s not a success rate poets like to hear, he says, but it’s the reality in the poetry publishing industry. Jeffrey Brown speaks with Shotts about his company’s location in the small press ‘mecca’ and why there’s never been a better time for poetry.” – 12/16/16 – PBS Newshour
