Wanted: Your Poetic Opinions
I’ve had a book of poetry in the works for a few years. I keep adding to it (2 new poems just today– inspiration like whoa!), and I’ll admit: I’m pretty psyched on it.
But when it comes to putting it out, I always get hung up:
Typically, publishers aren’t super into hawking verse-y lines of personal feels, so I’m pretty much on my own. Do I just do a cheap e-book? Do I slave over handmade chapbooks? I don’t know what the poetry aficionados want from me!
So basically, I do what I always do in such moments of indecision: Not a damn thing.
But I’ve been feeling the necessity of really writing and releasing lately, from the big book I have in my heart to this little labor of poetic love. So I thought I’d ask what you think, since you’re the ones who I would be asking to invest a few dollars and some spare moments in reading it.
I know poetry isn’t for everyone, but for those of you who are into it (there are plenty samples of my poetry here if you aren’t sure)– what format would you enjoy reading it in? E-book, hard-copy print, limited edition handwritten copy that you can treasure forever because I totally have cramped fingers now?
Share your thoughts in the comments! Thanks, guys!
