PUBLISHING YOUR POETRY|
Updated December 2022
How much money have you spent so far submitting your chapbook, larger collection and/or individual poems to contests and competitions? Who is sitting in judgment of your poetry? How long will you wait for the gatekeepers of university publishing to invite you into the fold? And meanwhile, let me guess, you've been printing out little bundles of poems for your family and friends — your own personal fan club who would love to have your collection, whether you win any prizes or not.How to Submit Your Poetry
The Worldwind Books Poetry Series is a service for U.S. poets with collections of 80 manuscript pages minumum whose work merits publication for worldwide distribution.
Your book will be professionally designed and published as part of the Worldwind Books Poetry Series, under contract to Amador Publishers, LLC. Your package will incude ISBN and Library of Congress numbers, copyright to the author, international availability, royalties, and a low author's price for you regardless of how many books you order, any time.
What makes a collection suitable for the Worldwind Books Poetry Series?Page Top
Worldwind Books seeks to publish a diversity of voices and a variety of poetic styles. We look for poetry collections that are slim and cohesive with some thematic or aesthetic unity. (Do not send your "Complete Works".) Poets may also want to include a brief bio and/or author statement, but remember that the poetry should speak for itself. We have determined that 96 to 140 total pages is the optimum size for the books in this series.
