James Webster

James is 18 years old. He has been writing for almost 4 years now. Most of what he does write is poetry. He also writes a few short stories, although most do not deal with fantasy. He is also a DM in Dungeons and Dragons. Most of what he writes relating to fantasy is integrated into his campaign. He is currently thinking of holding a campaign over the internet, but not sure when or if he will. Right now he is fixing to move from West Texas to Florida and will be down for a while. He would love to talk to anyone who would be willing to send a message to him, so don't be shy.
 
 
 
I want to become Poet Laurate in the next 30 years of my life. I have an email poetry list that I would be willing to add any one to. I have lofty goals, but I also have the desire to make sure they come true. Right now I am looking for an agent to help speed the process up so if you would please leave a comment for me about my work, I would graciously appreciate it. I plan to have my first book printed by the age of 21.

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
