Wouldn't quit the day job--but you love poetry nevertheless. A panel discussion with Alice Quinn, (Poetry Society of America/The New Yorker), Deborah Garrison (poet/Alfred A. Knopf editor), and Joseph Legaspi (poet/Kundiman codirector), moderated by Quang Bao on getting your poems and manuscripts edited and published.
A frank conversation about creating a life as a poet, including residencies, mentoring, anthology projects, self-publishing, MFA programs, teaching and public readings.
