Three poets, Crystal Gibbins, Adrian Koesters, and Michelle Menting—alum of the Creative Writing PhD Program of the UNL English Dept—offer advice and insights into the process of bringing their poetry to publication: from navigating the typical poetry-press contract to working with editors, from selecting cover art to marketing and promoting their new books. They’ll each read excerpts from their new poetry collections, and they’ll answer your questions about pursuing a writing career and a literary life.

Crystal S. Gibbins grew up on the islands of Lake of the Woods, Minnesota/Ontario. She is the author of the full-length poetry collection NOW/HERE (Holy Cow! Press) and two poetry chapbooks.

Adrian Koesters’ THREE DAYS WITH THE LONG MOON: POEMS was published in 2017 by BrickHouse Books, who also published her book, MANY PARISHES, in 2013.

Michelle Menting is the author of the full-length poetry collection LEAVES SURFACE LIKE SKIN (Terrapin Books).
