Poetry Publishing Question Empty
PostSubject: Poetry Publishing Question   Poetry Publishing Question EmptyThu Jun 11, 2009 9:15 am

If I publish a poem in a magazine, or I am paid for a poem, what happens if I want to publish that poem in my own book? Do I no longer have rights? Do they own the poem now? Do I need to get permission from them? Please tell me what usually happens.

Also, if I wanted to publish someone's poem in my book as part of a collection, does that poet get part of the profits?

Usually, your poem in a magazine is being sold under something like first rights or first serial rights or first North American rights, meaning that the magazine's rights probably expire with the publication of the issue you're in.

Thank you for the input, Malcolm and Marie. This question was asked of me by someone in a critique group and I didn't have an answer. As always I get good information from this forum.

Thanks again! I will pass it on!
