Marketing - the hard work begins
Writing and publishing your poems is the easy bit. Getting people to buy and read your book is the hard part. On average most authors will sell 250 copies of their books. Marketing is the trick, if you would like our factsheet about marketing please email us.
Poetry is food the the brain.
When you start to write poems, you are full of excitement, full of planning and the words are literally bursting out of you. Buzzing in your head and you need to find that piece of paper and a pen to get your nuggets of gold down for the world to see. However, sometimes you may need to stake small step back and make a plan. When you start, follow our simple tips to help make it easier:
- Know your poetry outcome. Decide what you want your poem to be about. Will it be a poem about a personal experience, a feeling, protest or a descriptive poem? Do not rush this stage, as it is one of the most important.
- Avoid Cliches. Be imaginative and use your own words and thoughts.
- Be accurate with description. Remember you are creating a picture or emoting a feeling in words for you and your readers. Remember our modalities of sight, hearing, smell, touch, taste and Kinesiology.
- If you Rhyme make sure it’s good. Think about a nursery rhyme, dum de dum de dum. Does your poem follow a rhythm?
- Write, revise, rewrite and revise. Put it aside for a while (24 hours for example) and then reread and revise.
