It seems to me that there probably isn't much of a market for poetry these days. Was there ever? So many people write poetry. Elderly grandmotherly women write elderly poetry and angst-filled teens write angsty poetry. The successful business executive scribbles his iambic pentameter in secret after his company has gone home for the night. Many people write poetry - all types! of poetry - yet it seems that not many people read the art. Please don't get me wrong. I realize there is deff an unpaid poetry market, but is there a paid market at all? I think not, but was wrong once before. end.
