Why is this forum so quiet?

Are there simply very few people interested in the topic?

I've wondered the same thing. I think it is interesting, but maybe not lucrative.

I can't speak for everyone, but the greeting card market is not what it used to be. Many companies are not taking freelance verse, and some have folded, or are slow on buying. And some of the group have moved on to other kinds of writing. From about 2005 to 2009, people were selling left and right, and American Greetings was even open to freelancers.

Yup, the market is down. And unfortunately, some of the smaller companies have dissolved and some have terminated use of their freelancers. Yet there are some companies who still use freelancers. And there is always that hope that the market will start picking up steam again. GC writing is not something you can depend on for a steady income, that's for sure. But if you have an interest and enjoy doing it for the sheer love of doing it, it could be a good fit for you, particularly in an improved market.

If u r interested in acquiring more info re. gc writing, just pm me.
