Are you a poet aspiring to get published, but not sure where to start? The library can help! Check out this recently added database, The Directory of Poetry Publishers.
The directory contains a Publisher Index, Regional Index, Subject Index, and eBooks Menu. You can navigate to these features from any page in the directory, as they are included at the bottom of each page.
The Publisher Index contains listings of both magazines and book publishers. Magazines are listed in the directory in italics and all caps. Presses are listed in normal type. Publisher names preceded by a bullet were recently added to the directory. Clicking on the name of the magazine or press takes you to an entry of information about the press. Have questions about the contents of entries? Every entry has a link to the Key to Directory Listings. The Key provides detailed information about the contents and navigational features of listings.
The Regional Index lists publishers by state and country. The main page of the Regional Index offers a quick glance at publishers in each region, listing number of publishers beside specific states and countries in brackets.
Similarly, the Subject Index compiles periodicals and presses publishing specific subjects. Subjects are listed in alphabetical order. Number of publishers listing subjects is displayed next to subject description, in brackets, on the main page.
Clicking on the eBooks Menu button directs you to the main page for Dustbooks eDirectories. Once on the main page, you can click on The Directory of Poetry Publishers to return to the directory... or, you can explore some of our other, newly acquired Dustbooks products! These other products (The International Directory of Little Magazines & Small Presses, The Directory of Small Press/Magazine Editors & Publishers, and The Small Press Record of Books in Print) will be discussed in later blog posts.
