: : : Dear Sir,
: : : I am 21 years old and I'm a serious writer. I write everything from songs to stories, but my first love is poetry. Everyone, including my professors are telling me how good my work is. And they believe I should get my writing copyrighted and published because they think it would sell. I would love to publish my writing, but I don't know the first step to getting a copyright. And I don't know how to go about publishing my poems. Please can you give me some resources or sites that I can visit for this information, or is it possible for you to help me??
: : Dear Ms. Sago,
: : The copyright usually is the last thing of concern. The is basic protection without registration and registration is simple.
: : The publishers usually take care of the registration.
: : The trick is to get the poetry to a publisher, or submit to magazines that publish poems to be published.
: : If you don't know the publishers, go to the local library and ask. Also find poetry books, see who the publishers are and then submit.
: : It is my understanding, that it is not easy, but if you keep plugging you will find a way.
