Poetry has the ability to move audiences and convey some of the deepest of feelings. As the late American poet Robert Frost once said,
"Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words."
As a regular performer of poetry in Worcester, I've been fortunate enough to have met some truly fantastic poets. If you're looking to share your own poetry, there are plenty of opportunities out there.
Formatting your collection
So you've worked hard on writing a moving, stunning collection of poetry and want to bring out a collection to share with the world. Just like with novels, it's important that your text looks right as well as reads well.
Formatting your collection ensures that your work fits neatly on the page and a smooth transition from one piece to the next. It also keeps your lines where they should be - no random ones floating off to one side!
There's also the decision of choosing what size your book should be. There's no hard-and-fast rule, but it's still an important factor you'll need to consider.
If you have a collection ready to send to the publishers (or even bring out yourself through self-publishing), send me a message to find out more about my poetry formatting services and for my formatting rate.
What better way to release your collection than through a launch event and reading? A press release is just one way that you can let people know that your work is out there for them to read or hear.
As well as making the media aware of your launch event, press releases and media packs can also be used to introduce yourself to your audience and potentially, even publishers.
Whether you just want to let the local paper know about your work or try to entice some of the larger names, media coverage is an effective way of getting your name out there. And you can also share articles on your personal social media pages to let your friends and family know!
