On Reading and Reading Fees — How Things Happen Around Here

This is an informative blog on reading fees. I personally have paid them and don’t have a problem with them, although I do like to find a free one when they are available. But then again, I’m sure most everyone likes a free thing in general. Any writers out there want to share their opinions?

Let me remind you at the outset that all July at Tupelo Press we’re reading Open Submissions of poetry (both full-length and chapbook-length manuscripts).

Note also, for poets interested in first-hand guidance on writing for publication along with forthright, behind-the-scenes looks at how the world of poetry publishing works, we’re offering three poetry seminars in September/October/November: one at the Fickett Farmstead in coastal Maine, September 13-14,

and one at Truchas Peaks Place in the Sangre de Cristo mountains of New Mexico, with poetry all-stars Patricia Smith and Veronica Golos, Oct. 31-Nov. 3.
