Advice on Getting Published

I’ve had fifty poems published over the years. Over the last year I’ve averaged one or more poems published out of every four submissions. This is typical for mid-level poets willing to share their acceptance rate. However, one writer said that if your rejection rate isn’t over 90%, you aren’t aiming high enough. So opinions vary. Given that I’m doing okay, I’m willing to aim a little higher.

Throwing Your Heart into The Fire, or How to Win at the Publication Game – guest post by Elya Braden is the most complete advice I’ve encountered on how to get published in literary journals. Some of it I know. Some of it tells me what I know, but don’t know that I know. Some builds on what I already know. None of it is contradicted by my experience.
