Okay. I admit it.
I’m not in the least bit qualified to show you how to write poetry – much less get it published.
My only claim to fame in the poetry field is that I share a name with a world-famous poet - Robert Bly - and have been mistaken for him on numerous occasions.
But...my friend Veronica Yates can teach you how to write poetry … and get it published in literary magazines or "chapbooks."
"Getting your first poem published doesn’t have to be the daunting, remote notion far too many beginning poets envision," writes Veronica in the introduction to her new e-book, How to Write Poetry and Get It Published. "In fact, the process can be fun, and with more chance of success than you might think."
Meet Veronica Yates, your poetry mentor
Veronica Yates’ work has been published in Writers' Journal and is forthcoming in Rosebud magazine.
She was selected as a semi-finalist in the 2006 Katherine Anne Porter Prize for Fiction in the Nimrod/Hardman Competition ... a third prize winner in the 2006 Artists Embassy International Dancing Poetry Festival ...and a poetry finalist in the 2006 Pacific Northwest Writers Association Literary Contest.
Most important, as a successful poet who is still in the formative stages of her poetry career, she has a special empathy for - and understanding of - the needs and concerns of novice poets that some other poetry teachers do not share.

Poets and writers praise Veronica Yates
"Aspiring poets will take flight from Veronica Yates' guide ... a solid foundation of critical information written so smoothly it sips like nectar."
--Nan Phifer, associate director, Oregon Writing Project.
"The advice Veronica Yates gives in this guide is especially valuable, replete as it is with lessons derived from her hard-won personal experience. She gives the reader not only useful, real-world advice, but offers encouragement and motivation based on the lesson from her own writing life."
"Since 2005, Veronica Yates has been a driving force of support as we’ve worked on our poems. Both of us have been published and won placements in poetry contests as a result of our association,"
