If you love writing poetry, you may wish to publish your poems to share with others. Maybe you enjoy amusing people with your rhyming riddles, or touching people’s hearts with your tales of sorrow and love.
Whether you write poetry about trains or trees, cats or catastrophes, the desire to share your words and thoughts with others can be an inherent part of being a writer. Whatever your particular slant of poetry, publishing a poetry collection can be a fulfilling and rewarding enterprise, that we could help you to realise.
There are different ways to publish your poetry, from mainstream publishers to indie publishers or self-publishing. Self-publishing can sometimes have bad press, due to unethical companies who take advantage of people’s publishing ambitions and dreams.
Mainstream publishers tend to favour books that have the potential to be bestsellers. Indie publishers do often publish poetry, but they can be inundated with submissions, and it can be difficult to get noticed.
Poetry doesn’t, in general, sell millions, but it brings pleasure, hope, and joy to those who read it, and that is far more important than profit. So, if you have a collection of poetry that you would love to see in a published book, this post might be helpful to you.
