Writing and Publishing Overview

The Academy of American Poets has put together an excellent overview of the publishing process; this article serves as an introduction to topics we'll cover in detail in this guide. Another excellent step-by-step guide from Aerogramme Writers' Studio can be found here. Poet, teacher, and Submittable Content Strategist Rachel Mindell also offers a free online class called How to Get Published: A Step-by-Step Guide to Submitting Your Writing on Skillshare.
