Tracy Repchuk - Why You Should Be Using BlogTalk Radio


For poets, there is a fantastic promotional tool you can take advantage of - and even better - it's free.

I have appeared on radio stations now all over the world, but unless it is a show like Howard Stern - radio doesn't make a lasting impression - unless it is

Here's why
- the radio show is kept on the internet forever
- you can access the show via mp3 and send it to your fans, post it on your blog, your facebook page, tweet about it
- you can take that audio, add it to a powerpoint, and make a YouTube vidoe out of it, and blast to all your social media contacts

It is making a huge impact out there.

Plus - there is tons of radio shows devoted to poetry where you can get interviewed, interview others, or just read your poetry on your own channel and build a network of listeners.

So next time you need publicity, or want to share your poetry with more users - open up a free account on and
start sharing.

Check out a free audio replay of an interview that was done by Dolores Seright for an upcoming book she is doing on successful women. Here is the interview:

It's Time To Think Poetry

I don't think there has been a greater need for poetry, as now. With so many events occurring that are changing peoples lives, with the doom and gloom of the economy and world wide events - it is up to us to create a better world. It is up to us to write poetry that will uplift, give hope, energize, send love, create peace and let people know something can be done about it. Unlike the rappers who have chosen to contribute to the degradation of society, we will go the other way.

This year for me has already started fast out of the gates. You can see my news below for complete details as I completed my 2010 Power of 3 World Tour and have already started 2011 with 5 countries.

We have lots of activity happening with local Federations so be sure to check the calendar for dates and times.

Reminder If you haven't already registered to pay via paypal - it is time to renew/join using this method so you can continue to be a part of a great organization


Enjoy the month and keep on creating :)
