I had a long discussion with a woman in her fifties who is an established but unpublished poet in the area - one of these people who are extremely well-known and respected within the immediate poetry community, but because they don't submit, nobody outside their area has heard of them. She doesn't submit because she feels incompetent to tell legitimate poetry publishers apart from scam artists, and is under the impression that scam artists abound. I had mentioned publishing online and she was horrified that I would allow such unfettered access to my work. She wanted to know why I wasn't worried about people stealing it. I said I thought the likelihood of that was very low, and vastly outweighed by the promotional aspect of having one's work available for free. She thinks I'm naive. It was a truly bizarre conversation.
