to Poet

on writing and publishing poetry



I’m Radha Marcum, the author of two award-winning poetry collections—Bloodline (New Mexico–Arizona Book Award, 2018) and Pine Soot Tendon Bone (Washington Prize, 2023).

As a long-practicing poet, I know the path to getting published is confusing at best.

It doesn’t have to be.

Over the years I’ve taught and coached poets, I’ve fielded more questions about how to assemble manuscripts and get published than about anything else. I began leading seminars that demystified that process in 2018. In 2021, I launched Poet to Poet to explore how poets go from writing to publishing, and what is working for diverse poets publishing now.

Whether you’re building a portfolio of journal publications or are working on a chapbook or full-length collection, you’re in the right place.

I hope you’ll enjoy the practical advice you find here. Rest assured, it is possible to be more strategic about publishing poetry. Let’s explore how.
