The 8th Annual Poetry Super Highway
Great Poetry ExchangeThe mission of the Poetry Super Highwayis to expose as many people to as manyother people's poetry as possible.
In February 2009, the Poetry Super Highway will coordinate a great free exchange of poetry publications amongst poets worldwide.
It's not a contest. There are no judges, entry fees, winners, or losers.
Last year, 94 poets participated both sending their book and receiving another poet's book from a randomly selected other participant
By agreeing to participate, someone will be exposed to your poetry, and you will be exposed to someone else's poetry.
To participate you must volunteer to mail one copy of one poetry book that you have written to one other person participating. Just one book. In exchange, you will receive in the mail one copy of one poetry book written by another participating poet.
E-books are not eligible for the Great Poetry Exchange. Your book must be physical entity. Even if it's self published, or one of one that you printed from your computer and stapled together...but please no e-books. (Though we will be repeating our annual Great E-Book Free For All later in the year!)
To Join In:
Go to http://PoetrySuperHighway.com/pshgpe.html. Make sure you've read all the guidelines and click on "ONLINE SUBMISSION FORM" to enter your book's information
In early March, we will randomly assign the books to each participant and email to you the name and address of the person you are supposed to send your book to.
We will also list your book and description on this web page along with the link to your website for all to see. In addition we will list the new books in our weekly e-mailed update which goes out to thousands of people.
Please note, as the Great Poetry Exchange is open to everyone on planet Earth, it's possible that you will be required to send your book to someone outside of your own country which will, of course cost you more in postage than it would to send it domestically.
Also, we'll ask that you send us an e-mail in March once your book has actually been sent so we can keep track and make sure that all participants who send a book also get one.
You also must agree to send out your book within 2 weeks of being notified of who to send your book to.
Please note, it's a circular exchange: You will be sending a book to a different person than you will be receiving one from.
