1:04 am PattiN: #poetparty hey poet people!
1:05 am 32poems: @pattin Hi there. Welcome to the #poetparty and please ask questions if you have them.
1:06 am 32poems: @robertleebrewer Q1: What do you think is important for poets to know when looking for the right place to publish? #poetparty
1:06 am robertleebrewer: Also, just in time for #poetparty, new Otoliths is live with one of my poems: http://bit.ly/9jzTlX
1:06 am eireannoir: Hey hey hey #poetparty
1:06 am jgpoetry: #poetparty Here.
1:07 am 32poems: @evelynnalfred Welcome and “boo” to you. Hope we don’t scare you too much during the #poetparty tonight.
1:07 am juliejordanscot: Wow – what a grand way to spend part of Halloween! Greetings to my fellow poets. Emma is watching the door while I am here! #poetparty
1:08 am danielnester: Q1 is a toughie. I suppose it means reading, acks pages of book you love, and figuring out where your work fits #poetparty
1:08 am 32poems: If you’re just joining in, we’re here at the #poetparty with @robertleebrewer who will talk about publishing & an unusual chapbook contest.
1:08 am shannpalmer: @32poems #poetparty Boo to You!!
1:09 am robertleebrewer: @32poems A1: Starting out, poets should find poets who write in similar styles. #poetparty & then, submit to places that publish those poets
1:09 am jgpoetry: #poetparty what publishers like and more importantly don’t like. I try to get to know what poems the publisher accepts before submitting.
1:10 am robertleebrewer: @DanielNester Yes, I think reading (a lot) is very important to IDing good matches. #poetparty Even then, there’s going to be rejections.
1:10 am 32poems: @memali Good evening. I see your tweet in my “home” feed. What are you using to follow the convo? Hootsuite or ___? #poetparty
1:11 am verylikeawhale: #poetparty Hi all – wonderful to be here. Saw your tweet, Marie Elizabeth!
1:11 am robertleebrewer: A1: I’d also say that just the act of submitting teaches a lot to poets new to trying to publish their work. #poetparty
1:11 am 32poems: @shannpalmer joins us in the #poetparty tonight. She’s missing Dexter for this @robertleebrewer so feel loved. LOL
1:12 am 32poems: @robertleebrewer — @jgpoetry wants to know what publishers like and don’t like… #poetparty
1:12 am robertleebrewer: @32poems I always feel lucky when @shannpalmer is around! 🙂 #poetparty or not!
1:13 am 32poems: RT @danielnester: Q1 is a toughie. I suppose it means reading, acks pages of book you love, and figuring out where your work fits #poetparty
1:13 am shannpalmer: @robertleebrewer #poetparty aw, thanks!
1:13 am 32poems: @danielnester That’s good advice about reading ACK pgs of books you love to find the rt markets. #poetparty
1:13 am danielnester: @robertleebrewer Ah, the rejections. Yes. Just got two last week. Yay. #poetparty
1:14 am robertleebrewer: @32poems @jgpoetry #poetparty I don’t want to speak to specific publishers, but they do like poets to follow their submission guidelines.
1:14 am CollinKelley: Hello, all. I am tardy for the #poetparty
1:14 am 32poems: @robertleebrewer Q2: What is the question people ask you most about publishing? And then, can you answer that for us? #poetparty
1:15 am jgpoetry: #poetparty sorry I meant to add A1 to my last tweet.
1:15 am verylikeawhale: @CollinKelley Hi Collin #poetparty
1:16 am 32poems: #poetparty folks: When replying to a Q pls number it using A1, A2 in response to Q1, Q2, etc. I forgot to say that before. =-)
1:16 am thestorialist: @DanielNester @robertleebrewer There should be rejection calisthenics. How to strengthen those muscles. A rejection celebration? #poetparty
1:17 am jgpoetry: @danielnester @robertleebrewer I look at rejections as opportunities. #poetparty
1:17 am CollinKelley: @verylikeawhale Hello Nic, @32poems, @robertleebrewer, @danielnester, @shannpalmer and all you lovely poets at the #poetparty
1:17 am robertleebrewer: @32poems A2: Most asked question is probably, “What are publishers and agents looking for now?” #poetparty
1:17 am 32poems: @robertleebrewer Yes, that’s so true about reading/following guidelines. 32Poems can’t publish poems over 32 lines. #poetparty
1:18 am robertleebrewer: @32poems The answer is usually–and I’m serious–“great writing.” #poetparty Of course, great writing changes from publisher to publisher.
1:18 am jgpoetry: #poetparty @32poems I use twitter app for iPhone.
1:18 am 32poems: Just sent question 2 to @robertleebrewer Stay tuned for more at #poetparty
1:19 am Greg_Dyer: Howdy all. Just dropping in for #poetparty.
1:19 am shannpalmer: #poetparty A1 misspellings and misplaced commas are also sad reflections on poetry less cared for…
1:19 am 32poems: @danielnester Me too re: rejections. Every no is closer to a yes and all that jazz. #poetparty
1:19 am robertleebrewer: @thestorialist @danielnester Rejections are motivational for me. #poetparty I use them as revision opps.
1:20 am danielnester: @32poems I always say when you find places you love/read/subscribe, but also know your work won’t fit, that’s good. #poetparty
1:20 am readwritecook: Hello everyone. #poetparty
1:20 am EvelynNAlfred: MT @32poems Yes, that’s so true about reading/following guidelines. 32Poems can’t publish poems over 32 lines. #poetparty [Note to self.]
1:20 am 32poems: We hope to draw @mrsmetaphor out of her sugar coma to join us @ the #poetparty — hopeful.
1:21 am verylikeawhale: @robertleebrewer @thestorialist @danielnester Hannah my rejection calisthenic is writing to thank the rejecting editor. #poetparty
1:21 am 32poems: Welcome @collinkelley @jgpoetry @greg_dyer @juliejordanscott to the #poetparty
1:21 am CollinKelley: @robertleebrewer I don’t start revising a rejected poem until its had two or three rejects. Never on the first rejection. #poetparty
1:21 am robertleebrewer: @32poems I often tell writers that just following the directions is half the battle in submitting your work. #poetparty
1:21 am Greg_Dyer: As for my platform, I’m using Ubertweet on my BB. #poetparty
1:21 am 32poems: RT @robertleebrewer: @32poems A2: Most asked question is probably, “What are publishers and agents looking for now?” #poetparty
1:21 am eireannoir: On the way back home and then changing out of my costume and then I’ll be with you #poetparty
1:22 am robertleebrewer: RT @danielnester: @32poems I always say when you find places you love/read/subscribe, but also know your work won’t fit, that’s good. #poetparty
1:22 am 32poems: RT @robertleebrewer: @32poems The ans is usually–& I’m serious–“great writing.” #poetparty Of course, great writing chgs from pub to pub.
1:22 am thestorialist: @robertleebrewer Re: A2, funny how fixated we all (me too!) are on publications. Is it possible to shift our obsession? #poetparty
1:22 am mrsmetaphor: @32poems #poetparty Hooray for Eastern Time…I’m not in my sugar coma yet!
1:23 am shannpalmer: @CollinKelley #poetparty Really?? That’s pretty strong of you- I waffle under and rewrite immediately
1:23 am robertleebrewer: @CollinKelley Yeah, I don’t always revise on rejections. #poetparty But I always do take a look to see if I’m missing something obvious.
1:23 am 32poems: @robertleebrewer A2: The hard prt about explaining “great” writing is that, for me, I know it when I see it… (cont) #poetparty
1:24 am CollinKelley: @shannpalmer I think it’s pragmatic. Just because one editor doesn’t like it doesn’t mean the poem isn’t good. #poetparty
1:24 am 32poems: @robertleebrewer A2: And great writing is a visceral experience AND includes good grammar, punctuation as @shannpalmer noted. #poetparty
1:24 am LorneDaniel: @robertleebrewer @32poems Yes, there’s a necessary admin element to submitting #writing that we writers are reluctant to tackle. #poetparty
1:25 am robertleebrewer: @thestorialist I think it’s healthy to want to get your writing out there. #poetparty But don’t search for trends or fads.
1:25 am webbish6: Thanks for inviting me to the poetry party! I’ve brought apple cider and pumpkins! #poetparty
1:25 am thestorialist: @verylikeawhale That is delightful, Nic. I have thanked rejecting editors only occasionally. But a great practice/habit! #poetparty
1:25 am poet_poesie: RT @CollinKelley: @robertleebrewer I don’t start revising a rejected poem until its had two or three rejects. Never on the first rejection. #poetparty
1:25 am 32poems: @katrinavanden Want to join us for the #poetparty going on now?
1:25 am robertleebrewer: It’s always best to write to your passions. #poetparty Whether writing poetry, fiction or nonfiction.
1:26 am 32poems: @thestorialist Good question. To what should we shift our obsession? #poetparty #Writing maybe.
1:26 am robertleebrewer: RT @CollinKelley: @shannpalmer I think it’s pragmatic. Just because one editor doesn’t like it doesn’t mean the poem isn’t good. #poetparty
1:26 am jgpoetry: @robertleebrewer @collinkelley #poetparty I don’t rewrite til I get several rejects. But 1 reject is also an op just by studying poem.
1:27 am CollinKelley: I’m not nearly as obsessed with individual poems being accepted to literary magazines. #poetparty
1:27 am 32poems: @lornedaniel A2: Yes, I think the admin prt can be overwhelming for some. #poetparty
1:28 am verylikeawhale: can anyone define what constitutes a successful poem in 140 characters? #poetparty
1:28 am 32poems: RT @danielnester: @32poems I always say when you find places you love/read/subscribe, but know yr work won’t fit, that’s good. #poetparty
1:29 am 32poems: @robertleebrewer Q3: What is this November poetry project I?ve been hearing about? #poetparty
1:29 am thestorialist: @LorneDaniel fantastic point about admin work! I’d love to know how you manage submissions, @robertleebrewer / everyone? Excel? #poetparty
1:29 am webbish6: @CollinKelley I agree,it’s important to believe in your poems enough to not let a few rejections make you doubt it. Tastes differ #poetparty
1:29 am rmfenwick: Was recently accepted at NY Quarterly’s 1st tier, then rejected by full panel. Who is the 1st tier editor typically? #poetparty
1:29 am CollinKelley: @verylikeawhale I think a successful poem is one that moves you and you return to again and again. #poetparty
1:29 am robertleebrewer: Not sure if I’m allowed to ask the questions, but I wonder if anyone at #poetparty simultaneously submits poems.
1:29 am 32poems: @collinkelley A2: Sometimes, I’ve revised a poem by the time it comes back. #poetparty
1:30 am webbish6: @robertleebrewer I sim sub all the time. Too many places take too long to get back, if they get back at all… #poetparty
1:30 am EvelynNAlfred: @32poems @robertleebrewer If the guidelines aren’t followed, do the poems go straight into the “round file”? #poetparty
1:31 am 32poems: @webbish6 Thanks for stopping by. We’re talking about publication. #poetparty
1:31 am shannpalmer: @verylikeawhale #poetparty one that somebody likes enough to publish- that’s successful
1:31 am CollinKelley: @robertleebrewer I don’t simultaneously submit. It’s tempting, but ultimately could cause problems. #poetparty
1:31 am shannpalmer: @CollinKelley #poetparty that, too- a successful poem
1:32 am verylikeawhale: @CollinKelley that’s good. I think a successful poem reminds. Of some visceral thing you didn’t even know you had forgotten. #poetparty
1:33 am verylikeawhale: @shannpalmer that’s good! #poetparty
1:33 am robertleebrewer: @32poems A3: Ah, yes. The November Poem-A-Day Chapbook Challenge begins tomorrow! Here’s a link: http://bit.ly/aLrPvV #poetparty
1:33 am 32poems: I’m not against sim subs, though we don’t allow them at 32P. John gets back to people fast! #poetparty
1:33 am jgpoetry: #poetparty @robertleebrewer I’ll take that as Q3. A3: if they allow simultaneous subs, I’m doing it.
1:33 am 32poems: RT @robertleebrewer: It’s always best to write to your passions. #poetparty Whether writing poetry, fiction or nonfiction.
1:33 am robertleebrewer: A3: Basically, poets write a poem each day in November based off prompt at Poetic Asides blog. #poetparty (cont…)
1:33 am shannpalmer: @robertleebrewer #poetparty I don’t usually simsub but I have in the past- I’m terrible about submitting though
1:34 am 32poems: @collinkelley Are you more interested in book pub then? #poetparty
1:34 am robertleebrewer: A3: Then, they assemble a 10-20 page chapbook of poetry in December & beginning of January. #poetparty Lots of fun & learning experience.
1:34 am 32poems: @verylikeawhale You ask an extremely tough question. re: Desc good poem in 140 char. #poetparty
1:34 am thestorialist: RT @robertleebrewer: @32poems A3: Ah, yes. The November Poem-A-Day Chapbook Challenge begins tomorrow! Here’s a link: http://bit.ly/aLrPvV #poetparty
1:35 am robertleebrewer: Actually @shannpalmer won the contest in the first year! #poetparty
1:35 am 32poems: @thestorialist I use Excel, 5 rows, title, time out, time in, name of mag to track subs. #poetparty
1:35 am CollinKelley: @32poems I have a full collection & every poem in it except one has been published. I’m kinda running on empty. #poetparty
1:36 am 32poems: RT @collinkelley I think a successful poem is one that moves you and you return to again and again. #poetparty // Well sd!
1:36 am shannpalmer: @robertleebrewer #poetparty I don;t recall that we HAD to use the prompt- am I incorrect?
1:37 am 32poems: RT @robertleebrewer A3: Ah, yes. The Nov Poem-A-Dy Chapbook Challenge begins tmw! Details: http://bit.ly/aLrPvV #poetparty
1:37 am EvelynNAlfred: *Passing out candy at the #poetparty*
1:37 am mrsmetaphor: RT @32poems: RT @collinkelley I think a successful poem is one that moves you and you return to again and again. #poetparty // and share!
1:37 am jgpoetry: #poetparty A3 pt 2: I take great care when deciding whether to sbmt to pub that does not allow sim subs. I decide via intuition.
1:37 am verylikeawhale: @32poems it is tough! what’s your definition in 140 char? #poetparty
1:37 am 32poems: @robertleebrewer Q3 prt 2 What made you start the Nov Poem-a-Dy chapbook contest? #poetparty
1:37 am webbish6: Do you buy books from the publishers you submit your books to? Seems like the only way to know a good fit, but gets expensive #poetparty
1:38 am mrsmetaphor: The best poems are the ones that you want to be give to someone else, then poetry becomes communal. 🙂 #poetparty
1:38 am eireannoir: And I’m here. Miss anything good? #poetparty
1:38 am robertleebrewer: @thestorialist For tracking subs, I actually use notebook but with spreadsheet feel similar to @32poems. #poetparty
1:38 am jgpoetry: #poetparty dang. My numbers are off! My A3 doesn’t correspond to Q3. Must be the sugar. My bad.
1:39 am mrsmetaphor: Right, speaking of proper grammar…I blame the reeses cups… sorry #poetparty
1:39 am CollinKelley: @webbish6 It does get expensive, but I do buy books from publishing houses I like & want to submit to in the future. #poetparty
1:39 am robertleebrewer: @shannpalmer Not exactly. #poetparty There are prompts provided though each morning.
1:39 am LorneDaniel: Poetry is right brain. Submitting it is left brain. Where do u think poets excel? @thestorialist @32poems @robertleebrewer #poetparty
1:39 am shannpalmer: @robertleebrewer #poetparty thanks…
1:40 am mrsmetaphor: RT @jgpoetry: #poetparty dang. My numbers are off! My A3 doesn’t correspond to Q3. Must be the sugar. My bad.// a valid excuse in my…
1:40 am webbish6: @CollinKelley Me too! I think if more people did it, publishers wouldn’t need the dreaded “contest fees” #poetparty
1:40 am stickpoet: trick or treat #poetparty
1:41 am verylikeawhale: I don’t think we are our own best submittters. We should team up and submit each others’ work. #poetparty
1:41 am EvelynNAlfred: My goal is to submit to at least 12 different places this (school) year. #poetparty
1:41 am CollinKelley: @webbish6 And I believe in supporting small, indie presses. That’s who published my books, so I want to give back the love. #poetparty
1:41 am robertleebrewer: @32poems A3 (pt2) Really, I just wanted to give poets something to do while their fiction friends novel through November. #poetparty
1:42 am verylikeawhale: @stickpoet hi Michael! #poetparty
1:43 am 32poems: @robertleebrewer If ppl are inclined, Excel/Word doc stored in Goog Docs means subs trcking = avail from anywhere. #poetparty
1:43 am robertleebrewer: @CollinKelley @webbish6 I don’t submit to book publishers if I don’t know what quality their finished product is like. #poetparty
1:43 am CollinKelley: @verylikeawhale Nic, we should have you contact lit mags and read our poems to them for us. 🙂 #poetparty
1:43 am shannpalmer: RT @CollinKelley: @verylikeawhale Nic, we should have you contact lit mags and read our poems to them for us. 🙂 #poetparty
1:43 am juliejordanscot: I’m going wild in November, with Poetry, #NaNoWriMo AND #AEDM (art every day month. I often combine art forms so it works… #poetparty
1:44 am tinanguyen: RT @robertleebrewer: @32poems I often tell writers that just following the directions is half the battle in submitting your work. #poetparty
1:44 am jgpoetry: #poetparty I don’t really understand how nov pad works, but I’m arriving a poem a dag regardless. Do I sbmt every day? end of the month?
1:44 am juliejordanscot: @EvelynNAlfred What a great goal! One submission a month! #poetparty
1:44 am alvasvoboda: RT @robertleebrewer: A3: Basically, poets write a poem each day in November based off prompt at Poetic Asides blog. #poetparty (cont…)
1:44 am thestorialist: @LorneDaniel @32poems @robertleebrewer Poets need to be good/comfortable w/talking about their work. All artists struggle, eh? #poetparty
1:44 am robertleebrewer: @LorneDaniel Poets write poem. #poetparty The admin stuff is the tough part. For me anyway.
1:45 am juliejordanscot: @mrsmetaphor – Ohhh, communal poetry. I love that concept. #poetparty
1:45 am PattiN: #Poetparty: just been told that @endlesshaikyu republishes people’s #haiku without permission, so be careful what you tweet
1:45 am juliejordanscot: are there any other performing poets at the #poetparty? I have two performances scheduled for November.
1:45 am EvelynNAlfred: RT @verylikeawhale: I don’t think we are our own best submittters. We should team up and submit each others’ work. #poetparty [Great idea!]
1:45 am thestorialist: RT @robertleebrewer: @32poems A3 (pt2) Really, I just wanted to give poets something to do while their fiction friends novel through November. #poetparty
1:45 am 32poems: @webbish6: I’ve bought books from pubs I sent books to. Bonus for publisher? Ask lib to buy book! Then, borrow from lib. #poetparty
1:46 am robertleebrewer: RT @CollinKelley I believe in supporting small, indie presses. That’s who published my books, so I want to give back the love. #poetparty
1:46 am eireannoir: RT @PattiN: #Poetparty: just been told that @endlesshaikyu republishes people’s #haiku without permission, so be careful what you tweet
1:46 am eireannoir: @PattiN Thanks for the heads up. I’m retweeting that. #poetparty
1:47 am 32poems: @jgpoetry: #poetparty A3 pt 2: I take great care when deciding whether to sbmt to pub that does not allow sim subs. I decide via intuition.
1:47 am robertleebrewer: @32poems That’s right. #poetparty Perhaps without realizing it, Google is revolutionizing how poets can work.
1:47 am jgpoetry: @juliejordanscot @mrsmetaphor #poetparty the ancients wrote poems communally. Need to get back to that inho.
1:47 am 32poems: @collinkelley Yes. And I have to tell you all…ask your univ/college/local lib to buy those books (and mags!) #poetparty
1:48 am CollinKelley: Guy, I’ve got to duck out of the #poetparty early. Just got in from NC with my folks & much to do before work tomorrow. Love to all!
1:48 am shannpalmer: @robertleebrewer #poetparty google changes everything
1:48 am 32poems: @tarabetts Feel welcome to join us at the #poetparty
1:48 am thestorialist: @robertleebrewer @CollinKelley re:indie presses, YES. I think US could benefit from Canadian model (like Gaspereau Press). #poetparty
1:48 am shannpalmer: @CollinKelley #poetparty Byeeee
1:49 am 32poems: @verylikeawhale A good poem is one that surprises me and that demands to be read multiple times (and I find s.t. new ea time). #poetparty
1:49 am CollinKelley: Once again, thanks to @32poems for hosting the #poetparty. You rock. See y’all next time. 🙂
1:49 am januaryoneil: @32poems Hi Deb! Just stopped in to say hello. #poetparty
1:49 am eireannoir: @CollinKelley G’night! #poetparty
1:50 am 32poems: @a_divas_hammer We’re talking about publication, sim subs, finding the rt market. Welcome! #poetparty
1:50 am LorneDaniel: @robertleebrewer Agreed – have to force myself to do the admin stuff. #poetparty
1:50 am robertleebrewer: @CollinKelley See you later! #poetparty
1:51 am 32poems: @juliejordanscot Are you performing in CA? I perform at readings… #poetparty
1:51 am mrsmetaphor: Must go, lovelies…have 4 highly sugared up kids in need of calming. Good chatting with you all! #poetparty
1:51 am EvelynNAlfred: RT @tarabetts: @EvelynNAlfred Best of luck with your submissions! [Thank you. 6 rejections so far…] #poetparty
1:52 am rmfenwick: re tracking submittals: I do a terrible job following my submittals. Started using excel and am doing better at it. #poetparty
1:52 am jgpoetry: #poetparty I don’t think I’d want another poet submitting my poems. Ultimately other poets are readers like everyone else. Makes a diffrnce.
1:52 am 32poems: @robertleebrewer What do you wish you’d know when first sending out your work? #poetparty
1:52 am tinanguyen: RT @32poems: @robertleebrewer If ppl are inclined, Excel/Word doc stored in Goog Docs means subs trcking = avail from anywhere. #poetparty
1:52 am 32poems: 8 min left in the #poetparty … Have any other questions?
1:53 am stickpoet: @LorneDaniel @robertleebrewer Like Submissions? #poetparty
1:53 am eireannoir: @mrsmetaphor Good night! #poetparty
1:53 am susanwrites: RT @robertleebrewer: @32poems A1: Starting out, poets should find poets who write in similar styles. #poetparty & then, submit to places that publish those poets
1:54 am shannpalmer: @32poems #poetparty I’d want to know if I have a chance in hell..but that’s the game, otherwise, we all just wait to be asked for poems!
1:54 am jgpoetry: @rmfenwick #poetparty I used excel for years but recently switched to google docs spreadsheet.
1:54 am eireannoir: RT @robertleebrewer: @32poems A1: Starting out, poets should find poets who write in similar styles. #poetparty & then, submit to places that publish those poets
1:54 am robertleebrewer: @32poems A4: That’s a tough Q, because I have a horrible memory. #poetparty I guess I wouldn’t stress over how fast I found publication.
1:55 am thestorialist: @32poems @robertleebrewer Curious to know whether poets split themselves, ala Wallace Stevens, or have cohesive prof. lives? #poetparty
1:56 am robertleebrewer: A4: Publication happens if you work at it. #poetparty Don’t fret over how long it’s taking. And reading other poets really does help.
