On Friday, May 7, 2021 from 4 to 5 p.m. the UWGB Creatives will present “How to Publish Your Poetry” with Casey Thayer (B.A., English- Creative Writing, ’06).
Thayer will offer advice on how to avoid publishing pitfalls, how to narrow the field when submitting your work, and how to prevent your submissions from landing on the slush pile.
Thayer holds an MFA in Poetry from Northern Michigan University. He is the author of Self Portrait with Spurs and Sulfur (University of New Mexico Press, 2015) and Love for the Gun (2021), winner of the Cow Creek Chapbook Contest. He’s published poetry in AGNI, American Poetry Review, Poetry, Prairie Schooner, and elsewhere. Thayer was also awarded a Wallace Stegner Fellowship from Stanford University and a Tennessee Williams Scholarship from the Sewanee Writers’ Conference; he has taught writing at UW-Rock County, Stanford University, and the City Colleges of Chicago.
