Bring Words to Motion
- Publish Your Poetry -
Your First Edition
We do a lot of limited edition first collections, often in about 25 short run quantities. Thirty pages is usually about right for a chapbook - enough for your best works to be read by an enthusiast in one or two sittings. We'll also create a harmonizing cover design to represent your theme.
Most of our clients go through a total of about 250 books over several reorders. This is about how many readers most authors know within their circle of acquaintances, work & church, etc. At $4 - $9, each of these are not too expensive for hand-selling inscribed single copies and even giving as gifts.
Marketing Your Works
The most successful way we’ve seen to market poetic works is through author appearances. You can distribute a good quantity of books profitably and it’s a satisfying interaction with your readership. Once someone has met an author, that’s when they want to read your prose.
Libraries, coffee shops, galleries, and youth workshops are the way to proceed. Tell anecdotes about your muses and how you create. Call us, we can suggest a lot of things we’ve seen our authors try. Social media presence is popular & free or we can set you up with your own website for blogging and direct re-orders.
"Poetry is when an emotion has found thought, and the thought has found words."
