When was the last time you BOUGHT a book of poetry?
When was the last time you READ a book of poetry?
I’ve been tossing around the idea of publishing a book of poetry. I would want to go the traditional route of publishing. I LOVE poetry. I enjoy reading poetry. But WordPress these days, is pretty much the extent of the poetry I read.
So I started poking around the internet and came across some pretty popular books from Barnes & Noble to Amazon & Kindle. So there is a lot of popular poetry books coming off the presses. Good to know!
Then I dug a little deeper and did some reading of said popular poetry. This convinced me that I should at least consider publishing a book of poetry.
I hear good and bad about publishers and poetry. I hear some feel it’s not enough of a money-maker, so they avoid them.
Publishers. Another piece of the puzzle. There MUST be a better way than to just submit my stuff willy-nilly to publishers and cross my fingers??
If anyone has any advice, or hints that might help me along on this journey, I would sure appreciate your input! Or if someone out there would at least let me play 20-questions so I can pick your brain? Please drop me a note!
Ok my WordPress friends. I need your help! Thank you!! Penny
** Thank you for all the responses that I’ve received on this post! You guys are awesome! I know that I need to get more individual pieces published before approaching a publisher. It’s just hard to be patient. So I will just keep writing and keep submitting. Thank you again. Your help is appreciated! Penny ❤
