Writing the poems if of course the most important. But after that, you'll probably want to send them to print and on-line journals for publication. And while no one can guarantee success, there are strategies and tips of the trade to help make getting your poems published a little less daunting.

You'll look under the publishing hood with Pui Ying Wong and Tim Suermondt, two poets who've been in the poetry trenches for a good many years and will impart what's often involved and sometimes required-the good, the bad, and the ugly.

In addition to dealing with the ins and outs of poetry submissions, you'll also get the chance to play editor by judging some poems and getting a sense of what's cooking from the editor's side.

Rejection is the nature of the poetry beast-it happens to the best and most renowned of poets-but let's see if we can get the odds of acceptance more in our favor. We're stronger than any beast-we're poets.
