Mackey shares her tips to other poets, including the need to concentrate on their craft and create interesting work, but the potential to reach a huge audience online brings great possibilities.

  • Publish what you like, in my opinion, yes, that is enough :-)
  • Dear Mary... I have one book published, but don't know how to allow it to blossom. Could you give me tips and pointers... thank you so much
  • I have published five books of prose in several genre. I also have several hundred poems stored in notebooks, about 70 of which have been published over the years. I am considering publishing a collection but am held back by wondering which of the poems are of sufficient quality to publish. What criteria should I apply? I know what I like but is that enough? Thank you, Karen Karper Fredette
