S.O.S. for Poets
Are you looking for that special edge that takes you to the top of the list
of contests, publishers, and magazines?
If you have ever received your poems back with yet another polite but vague
rejection note, you can benefit from a fresh professional perspective.
Tired of returned work with no indication whether the magazine hated them, or
thought they needed work, or loved them but didn't think your work fit with
the other writing in their upcoming issue?
You're certain your manuscripts
and poetry is professionally presented, but you just aren't getting results.
So what's wrong?
Let Joanne Merriam, author of "The Glaze From Breaking", help you establish
yourself as a poet by doing an evaluation of your work, and sending you at
least a full page of personalized recommendations on how to improve your poetry.
For a modest fee, you can break out of the pack and get noticed!
