Poets & Writers Turns 40 in March

Today in St. Peters, MO: Overcast, 33 degrees.

If you're like me, you subscribe to writing magazines to keep abreast with what's going on in the world of writing and publishing.

One magazine I've subscribed to for some time is Poets & Writers. I also receive their newsletter in my e-mail. Their newsletter contains markets and writing contest information, including deadlines for submissions, plus some educational and inspiring articles.

In this article, Galen Williams, founder of Poets and Writers, tells the story of how the organization was born forty years ago, in March of 1970. Here's hoping Poets & Writers will be informing and inspiring writers for another 40 years!


  1. WOW! Forty years is a long time in this economy. Don't you think so? Do you feel like you get good information from their newsletter? Is it free?

  2. Hi Donna -- I have a fun award to pass on to you and a few other friends at my blog today. Please stop by when you have a moment.

  3. Hi Margo,
    Their newsletter is free, and I've read some helpful articles and found some new markets after reading the newsletter.

  4. Hi Patricia,
    Thanks for letting me know. I will check it out.
