Blue Light Press provides an easy to read list with great advice on how to shamelessly promote your poetry book or chapbook. Tips include things like:
- sending out review copies
- setting up readings
- publication parties
- attending open mics
- having an elevator speech ready
And many more! This is a great list to read if you are sending out manuscripts so you can start planning ahead and building a readership and fan base.
Also, make sure to check out their current chapbook contest. The reading fee is only $10 (much less than many other contests) and the winner receives 25 copies of their chapbook.
Note, they do not accept electronic submissions.
