I have a collection of poetry that I have compiled over the years. The poems within the collection are of a dark nature and reflect something that I have gone through as well as my own path of healing over the past 10 years. I would come out and say what it is, but I am not sure if it would be allowed on the forums and in the public eye. My biggest question is this. Poetry written somewhat like a memoir with intense imagery that may be triggering to some readers, are there agents or publishers out there for this kind of work? I would like to get published professionally as I want to help others who have gone through similar events. The problem is, this is such a delicate matter that I am not certain if an agent or publisher would feel comfortable pushing something along these lines. I have also thought of posting a poem or two in the poetry section, but again, they are very vivid and I do not wish to trigger bad thoughts or memories should other members have gone through similar experiences. Anyone able to help me out?
