The book can be of any kind, real paper or online-only, commercial or self-published. We only have one restriction: The poet must have been published in two mainstream journals, by which we mean journals that are discriminating.
Our launches may prove to be more effective than are the traditional restaurant or library launches, for several reasons.
First, we will post a batch of the poet’s previously-published poems so that readers can really sink their teeth into the author’s work, as opposed to only hearing them once as at a normal launch. And these poems will be linked directly to whomever is selling the books - a publisher or the poet’s own website.
Second, the launch will include, along with a photo and bio, an interview with the poet, which will also be linked to the poems and to the book source.
