I am writing a book of poetry and a workbook for sexual trauma survivors. I really want to publish it. How do I do that? I have no clue where to get started.

A friend of mine has written a book on this -and actually a few other closely related topics (like finding an agent, etc...) Her name is Fern Reiss.

Here is the link to it on Amazon:

check out duotrope for publishing venues. i just recently started submitting flash fiction to various mags, and their database is awesome.

you might want to try to publish individual poems first, so that you have a bit of a resume when you are submitting your collection. but of course different people have different approaches, whatever feels right to you.

i started subbing to on-line mags at first, but i was very careful to sub to those that are well established or edited by people whose writing i admire. i am happy with everything i published, except for one, which i subbed on a whim, and i am not too crazy about the mag now.

starting this september i am going to sub to only print mags, and will see if i get anything in. flash fiction is still on the fringes.

i can imagine that for poetry, as for flash fiction, on-line magazines could be really good. i would not submit a longer piece to an on-line mag, though.

i also joined zoetrope, a huge writing workshop, and it does have a poetry wing, though it is not as popular as short stories and flash. but there is a discussion board there, and a 'hall of fame', so you can see where other people have published.
