Sunday Task

I have 17 poems that feel ready to send out today (they never feel that way the day after sending them out, but that is one of the prices.) So how do I group them in 1 to 8-poem manuscripts that will go out to each of 13+ potential markets?

I have no idea. I’ve never had so many ready before.

I printed them out—also good for a final editing pass—and now drop them on the floor to play with them like a puzzle.
