View Full Version : epublishers/publishers for poetry collection

Hi, all,

I'm still looking for an epublisher/publisher for my poetry collections. I have two. One rhymed and one unrhymed. Any suggestions? Thanks much in advance.

Warm regars, Susie

Well, unless you're super famous, you're going to have a really hard time. Rhymed poetry in particular is a very tough sale. As to collections, it's easier to start with small collections in the form of chapbooks. Once you have a fair amount of writiing credits under your belt (or a couple credits in big houses) it's not terribly difficult to get chaps published by small press markets. Book length collections, alas, I fear are a near impossibility without bringing fame to the table or self publishing.

Alot of times editors in mags you're already published in will consider doing a chap of your work. That's how I got my gig, I was in the mag first.

Thanks much. I do have a lot of publishing credits, so I'll ask some of those folks.
