• Further thoughts:

    1) Whenever Poets & Writers interviews a literary agent, or talks about literary agents, poetry is not discussed, since there would be no money in it for them—but that fact is, itself, never mentioned.

    2) I can’t recall who said (as near as I can remember) “No poet on his deathbed ever said ‘I wish I had given away fewer books.’ “

  • I am so so so excited to read what you have to say on the subject of PR for poetry. I know it is impossible to have that one-size-fits-all plan, but honestly I’d trust anyone’s advice less if they claimed it worked that way. Just hearing the words of a poet I admire and who (at least in my eyes) has been very successful is something I believe will help guide me to making better decisions with my own work once I reach that point. Not to mention just having anyone in the industry (other than Robert, thank goodness for his articles though!) talking about this is wonderful. Poetry is already sometimes treated like the weird stepchild of the literary world, anything that can be done to better integrate her rocks in my book!
