Read. It’s not enough to write. With enough reading and listening to yourself, you will find authenticity and your own voice.
Marketing yourself as a poet may be a daunting task, but there are strategic steps you can take to be a successful poetprenuer, have your voice heard, put your name in print and tattooed in the hearts of every generation.
Ask any poet you know if they ever considered making a living from their writing and you’re likely to get an incredulous laugh in response. That’s because most poets—particularly the ones who have tried to do it—understand that the prospect of making a career out of their poetry is slim… well, very slim.
