Disclaimer: English isn't my native language and I haven't studied writing or poetry at all.

According to my question, I'm editing my poetry book, however, basically I'm a aspiring poet and my knowledges about book editing (specially for book poetry) are minimal (zero actually).

Checking questions in meta.writers, I found this one related to marketing a self-published book, but my questions is about sources or references that anyone can use for edit their self-published book.

Like the tile says, Are questions about sources or references for help book editing acceptable?

Questions asking for resources are on topic here. However, you're better off asking a specific question about an editing problem you have. The are not answerable and are what the Stack Exchange Q&A engine has been built to handle best.

  • I'll ask a new question about resources then. The specific question about editing problem will be asked once I checked the resources. Thanks. Commented Jan 23, 2015 at 16:43
  • Your question would be better if you said, in the question, what you were looking for - i.e., resources that relate to editing poetry. Some people may not follow your links. Commented Jan 24, 2015 at 0:51
  • I'm trying to ask about references or tips for book editing, for the moment I need a guide or basis for edit my self-published book, a example that comes in mind is: best way of order poems, (by chapters, or with special numeration, maybe reference to other poetry books for see his structure of the book not their poetry), etc but your comment will be in a new question since my poetry is in spanish language, I'm doubt that anyone can help me at this moment.
