Do The Math

At Spout, we are always amazed at the volume and quality of the submissions we receive, and wish we could publish more work than we do. According to a recent article from the Chronicle of Higher Education, there are plenty of publishing opportunities out there, but that isn’t necessarily a good thing. The growing number of upstart poetry publishers and the increased insularity and cronyism of the establishment journals is brewing up a big mess.
