    Review quote
    "Timely and necessary...it gives practical advice about where to submit work, and shares information on workshops and courses" Andrew Motion, Poet Laureate 'Offers essential material for poets. This useful guide shows how to go about publishing work and provides a list of magazines, publishers, events, markets and contacts.' Writers Forum (October 2007) 'Practical and encouraging... I was convinced of the book's usefulness for anyone wishing to make themselves heard in a super saturated market.' The Telegraph (25 November 2007) 'Poetry Writers' Yearbook 2008 is the most complete guide to poetry publishers in the UK and further afield.' Writers' News (Feb 2008) 'This comprehensive paperback offers information and advice on everything from funding to self-publishing.' Mslexi (Jan 2008)
