In this Zoom workshop, join editor and publisher of FlowerSong Press, Edward Vidaurre, to get an insider’s expertise on the poetry publication process. As an author, editor, publisher who has been on both ends of the publishing spectrum/nightmare/celebration, Vidaurre will talk about how to prepare your manuscript for a smooth first impression since publishers can judge a manuscript by its cover page. In Vidaurre’s own words: “I will speak of my process as a publisher, who I involve in determining acceptances and rejections. You’ve gotten accepted, now what? You’ve gotten rejected, now what? and so much more.” Don’t miss this chance to learn practical advice from this groundbreaking poet and publisher on navigating the world of poetry publishing.
Edward Vidaurre is the 2018-2019 McAllen, Texas Poet Laureate and author of six collections of poetry, including JAZzHOUSE (Prickly Pear Publishing, 2019). Pandemia and Other Poems is forthcoming from Aztlan Libre Press in August 2020.
