Tracy Repchuk here, president and founder of the Canadian Federation of Poets and I'd like to encourage you to find new ways to get your poetry out to the public.
Here is one great way -
CREATE A POETRY CD FOR FREE
There is nothing more powerful than hearing what a poem sounds like from its creator. Only you know exactly what it is meant to sound like, how you pause and invoke emotion from intonations and flex in tone. In the early days, poets created a chap book to get their work out the door, but now, you can record your voice on your computer and create a CD in under an hour.
Even better, keep the audio in digital .mp3 format, and sell it on the web. Zero cost to you, zero production, and by integrating it to paypal payment processor, you can be selling your work while you sleep.
I sell audios of everything I say and do - and people pay for it. You are no different, and can do the same thing.
Profit from your poetry, without the production costs of books.
Look under your computer's accessory option, and there is a function called Sound Recorder. Record your poetry and sell it in a compilation. If you have my book 31 Days to Millionaire Marketing Miracles, all of the steps are detailed in there for you.
If you have a blog, and want to share your poetry orally for free, you can record using this free service, which provides you with the code for a 'play, pause and stop' button that you can put on your blog or website.
