Katie Manning Published in Far Villages: Welcome Essays for New and Beginner Poets

Far Villages Book Cover

Katie Manning’s essay “How to Network as a Poet” was published in Far Villages: Welcome Essays for New and Beginner Poets (June 2020).

Black Lawrence Press describes the anthology as follows:

Poetry manuals, at their most essential, are aimed at demystifying aspects of poetry, in order to make poetry less daunting – especially for beginner poets. Such manuals are also reminders that poetry itself is a discipline with a landscape and a history. Far Villages builds on the body of work in this tradition by bringing a number of established and emerging poets together in a single volume to welcome new and beginner poets to the art of poetry, its craft, and the long journey within it.
