All Levels | Editors read thousands of poetry submissions for journals and may ask, “Poet, what were you thinking!?” We will demystify the question What do poetry editors really want? through shared insight, cynicism, examples of poems-gone-wrong, and suggestions for your publishing goals. Most importantly, we’ll read successful poems and discuss possible reasons for their publishable qualities.
