Almost all of the work by Emily Dickinson was in lines of 4 and 3 beats. You have probably noticed that people talk about her a lot, but you may also recall that she didn't eek out much of a living from the writing.

All of us writers are in a tough spot to find words that are (a) worth saying and (b) worth money (or more precisely, will convince a publisher that it will sell). In the poetry world especially, I have heard that books on shelves don't sell. Books sell at readings. If you find that your poems are engaging your audience (and yourself as a writer), then I say don't force a change.

To add in a couple more book suggestions:
All the fun's in how you say a thing
Timothy Steele

The poem's heartbeat

Yay for your R&R, JulieM!

The blog now says that the deadline for the MSS submitted after April 23 is the end of August. So I'm still going to be waiting for awhile, since I submitted April 30th.
