Another point of view:

(ARA) – During a recent online educational forum for student writers, a middle school teacher asked U.S. Poet Laureate Donald Hall if her student poets should attempt to get their poetry published. Hall’s answer was an unequivocal “Yes.”

“Wanting to get published is a good sign because it means that your poem is not just addressed to yourself,” Hall said. “If you want to publish [your poetry] it means that you want your poem to go out there to somebody else, even to strangers and that makes an attitude toward poetry which, I think, is very helpful.” (link)
