Was there a time when writers wrote, and voila were published? I don't think so.
The struggle of writing is just as intense as the tangle to publish. Publishing one's work is a business that can take up all of a writer's time but oh hell; it is the difference between writing for oneself, family and friends or feeling that one has something to say about issues and life, and the pursuit to be read.
So if you want to delve on costs and venues for publishing your poetry or other writing here is a good site to get you started.
Don't get frustrated as I already am. Amen.
