Yes! Another poet! I'm also trying to be published, but I can't quite figure out how to go about doing it. So far what I see is pretty good. If you want to talk poetry, email me. Welcome to the library.

Welcome to Wyvern's, James! I like the things that you have put up so far, put up more! I'm also with Laura, another poet! Yes! I think that your great with closed-form rhyming. Whenever I try to rhyme, well, let's just say it's not pretty. There's a reason I love Whitman. I look forward to more beautiful blends of peotry and fantasy.

Well, let's see...where to start. You are one of the best poets I have ever met. And, of course, I will be one of the first to read your book when it comes out!

Hello! Just as a note--if you're trying to get published, avoid "borrowing" names from Tolkien or any other author. For "fan" works it's probably okay, but some of these authors/estates are really vigilant about things like this. :-/ Also, I'm not so sure about poetry markets, but in the sf/f professional markets, "publication on the web" (e.g. putting up a whole work on a webpage) constitutes publication, period, and thus you can't offer "first (North American or world) right," which is what most publishers buy. Also, a note on agents in the sf/f (non-poetry) world: Good agents are assets. They don't look for writers. Writers go to them. You can find listings in Writer's Market, and some tips at the SFWA website (http://www.sfwa.org). I wish I could tell you about poetry markets, but I'm not a poet. Some interesting stuff here, though, and good luck.

James, You are a very talented writer. If you are looking to publish a book entirely of your own work, it is extremely difficult (trust me!!). You may want to try self publishing. This has worked for many poets trying to make a name for themselves. Depending on your level of commitment, you can even bind them yourself. I tried this and it works wonders. Good luck and keep writing. Poet CD
