All right, I can already hear y'all saying "I bought last year's edition, do I need this year's edition too?"

The answer is, of course, YES!

You need it because things in the writing world are changing even more rapidly than they ever were, exponentially since poetry went online. Publications may have gone out of business, and at least 300 NEW publications are listed. Criteria have changed. Web publications have blinked in and out faster than you can say "Netscape Navigator". And if you don't get the new book you might not know that "Frosted Creamsicle Quarterly" has been bought out and is now "Taxidermy and Bass Fishing Monthly"

Alright, so I made that up. But in the aqusition-and-merger-mad world of publishing, it's not too far from the truth. And I still maintain that, as a poet whose hobby is ammassing rejection slips, this is absoluteley the best way to go about doing so. By the way, I ALSO got three acceptances last year, from publications I found through Poet's Market 2000, AND got paid $50. So, last year's book paid for itself and the 2001 edition.

So get the NEW edition....and know what publishers want THIS year.

The question is not, "Do you need this?" You do.
The question is how often do you need a new edition? As this is an annual, you're likely to wonder if it is necessary to buy the latest and greatest. With the intense growth of websites and e-mail accessibility, I think all prior editions are woefully out of date. Five years ago, I would've said you'd be OK using an edition several years old. No longer.
Useful are the icons indicating if they pay, or won awards, etc.
I'm very systematic, and am interested in becoming recognized enough to sell a full collection of poems. I want to submit to only award-winning publications. No problem. This guide makes it easy.
I have used this guide successfully to be published. It is thorough, packed with info.
Note, however, it is not on disk. I want it searchable, so I don't have to thumb through each page. I want to choose criteria for selection and I want to search with keywords. Maybe next year's edition?
Also, if you are looking to get into the religious market, Poet's Market won't do. It is decent, but only covers the largest publishers. You are should also buy Sally Stuart's "Christian Writer's Market Guide," a very similarly structured book, the definitive guide for Christian writers.
I fully recommend this book.

This is an excellent reference book for all poets! The book contains more than 1,800 places to publish your poetry and it includes submission guidelines as well as contact names!
Writer's Digest Books has done a wonderful job at compiling information for all poets, from beginners to the experienced. 2001 Poet's Market has a "Quick-Start" guide, which really helps you utilize this book as a tool. There are also symbols to help you distinguish which markets apply to you. As you flip through the pages, you realize that this book needs to be read in completeness, at least once, because it holds a lot of valuable information aside from 'where to publish'. For example, there is a section about revisions, a section on how to be successful in submitting your work, contests, workshops, etc.
2001 Poet's Market is set up in a way to help you succeed in publishing your poetry. It gives you all the tools you need to become a successful published poet!! I'm certain that I will go back and refer to this book often, and I'm sure you will too. So if you are a poet who is looking to get published, GET THIS BOOK!

Here's my advice: if you are confused about where to send your latest poetic masterpiece, then get this book now. Literally hundreds of magazines that accept poems are included, and the author mentions which magazines pay you money. Also, some magazines require poems on specific topics, and this book explains it all.
