Poetry Self Publishing is Perfect for Ebooks
Poetry self publishing has never had the same stigma as fiction or non-fiction self-publishing.
Possibly this is because it’s a well-known fact that few people in the U.S. today actually read and appreciate poetry… so how could any publisher expect to sell more than a few copies?
What is one to do? Especially the dedicated poet who cannot not write; it’s in their blood. Often it is their blood.
Throughout history, every culture except ours has always held poetry in the highest regard.
“Poetry as an art form may predate literacy. Thus many ancient works, from the Vedas (1700 - 1200 BC) to the Odyssey (800 - 675 BC), appear to have been composed in poetic form to aid memorization and oral transmission, in prehistoric and ancient societies.
"Poetry appears among the earliest records of most literate cultures, with poetic fragments found on early monoliths, rune stones and stelae.
"Poetry was employed as a means of recording oral history, story (epic poetry), genealogy, and law.
"Poetry is often closely related to musical traditions, and much of it can be attributed to religious movements. Many of the poems surviving from the ancient world are a form of recorded cultural information about the people of the past, and their poems are prayers or stories about religious subject matter, histories about their politics and wars, and the important organizing myths of their societies.”
Poetry Self Publishing is Perfect for Ebook Reading Devices
Since the world was created neither by corporate publishers nor by a semi-literate contemporary society, it was time for cosmic intervention and the creation of a new delivery system to preserve one of the world’s most prized literary art forms.
