OPA National Poetry Month Publishing Workshop April 26th
with M. Scott Douglass, Publisher
Main Street Rag
If you’ve ever wanted to publish a book or chapbook of poetry but felt completely overwhelmed by the thought of doing so, then the OPA has a must-attend event for you. To celebrate National Poetry Month this year, OPA members are invited to attend a publishing workshop where they can get great ideas and advice to help them compile a manuscript.
We will welcome M. Scott Douglass, Publisher and Managing Editor of Main Street Rag Publishing Company. The company has been publishing a print magazine, Main Street Rag, which features poetry, short fiction, photography and graphic images, essays, commentary; and it publishes poetry collections through an annual chapbook contest as well as The Main Street Rag Poetry Award for full-length collections.
The publishing workshop will focus on:
· Strengthening poems for submission.
· How to compile a manuscript.
· Process of publishing.
· Artwork (e.g., cover, interior).
· Royalties, payment, etc.
