It is extremely important that you start sharing your work in public forums and seek publication of individual poems/stories/excerpts of chapters before you attempt to publish a complete collection/novel. There is a lot to learn about the business of becoming a published author before you take the big leap.  THIS METHODOLOGY NOT ONLY APPLIES TO POETS, BUT ALL WRITERS!!!

Thanks for taking the time to explore the two attached links.  I met Poet Tarfia Faizullah at the event recapped in the video in the first link.  She's an excellent poet, who is slowly building a great resume that will support her collection when it gets published.
