Happenstance poetry publisher, Helena Nelson was shocked to receive “business as usual” proposals from poets wanting their work published.

In a blog post, “What C-19 is doing to poetry publishing” she points out just why this usual way of getting printed is not the best approach and gives recommendations for what poets SHOULD do over the next few months.  (Read books, write poetry, review poems, buy books).

Think of it logically: publishers have to sell their already printed books before they will have any space or money to invest in new publications.
