Back in the early days of self-publishing, it was generally held that self-published book authors did not need a literary agent.
Even today, many self-published authors choose to release their books on their own because they don’t want to pay the fees associated with literary agencies. Also, they want to keep a larger percentage of their royalties.
But something interesting is starting to happen in the publishing industry. Literary agents are increasingly willing to work with authors who prefer to self-publish—and who have little to no interest at all in traditional publishing.
This is not a widespread trend yet, but it is something to watch.
It’s our job to stay tuned in to trends in the publishing industry, and we’ve noticed that some poetry formatting choices don’t resonate well with editors of literary journals. If you’d like to get your poems published in literary magazines, consider these tips before making your submission.

Often, we at Writer’s Relief read query letters from writers who will mention more than one book. They mention prequels and sequels, previously published books, unpublished books, self-published books, and more. But is it a good idea to mention other book projects in your query letter?
Though every writer’s situation is unique, here are some things you’ll want to take into account before you mention other projects when you are pitching via query letter.
As a poet, Lynn also demonstrates the skills of a storyteller. She uses words to harness the power of images, creating unforgettable visuals in her readers’ minds. Her poetry is striking in the sense that it addresses philosophical questions while exploring intimate relationships between ordinary people; it focuses on both universal and slice-of-life themes.

Time. There never seems to be enough of it, especially if you’re trying to schedule writing time into your already busy day. It’s all too easy to let other tasks and responsibilities push writing aside, assuming that you will get to it tomorrow. But tomorrow becomes the next day, then the next week. How do you make the time to make your writing a priority?
