Insider's Guide to Getting Your Poems Published
Who Else Wants to Sell Their Poems? New "Insider's Guide" Reveals...
"How to Sell Your Poems and Get Published...Even If You've Never Been Published Before!"

Date:
 

Dear Friend,

     If you're passionate about poetry... if you'd love to get your work published, but aren't sure how to do it... then this is going to be the most exciting message you'll ever read.

     Here’s why. Imagine walking to your mailbox…

     You open it, and inside, there’s the letter you’ve been waiting for. You don’t really have time to read your mail right now, but this one you rip open right on the spot.

     With trembling fingers, you withdraw the letter, and read these words:

Dear [your name],

Thank you for the poems you sent in to us.

Your poems really spoke to me, and I think my readers will love them too. Of the five you sent, I want to publish the second one in the next issue of our magazine, and the third and fifth in a later issue.

I’ve enclosed a check for first rights to these three poems. If you’re satisfied with the amount, please let me know as soon as possible so I can get these poems into our production process.

I look forward to hearing from you…

    Before you even finish reading, you notice you’re jumping up and down. Strange—you don’t remember starting to dance, yet here you are…

    Does this sound like a fantasy? It shouldn’t. If you’re reading these words, I’m convinced you too can be a published poet. And legitimately published…not being suckered by the poetry scams out there nowadays.

    There is one drawback, though. Your first acceptance letter will make you do the “happy dance” just like I described above…and it makes you look really silly. (Trust me on this one. Do it in private.)

    Getting published—even getting published frequently—isn’t as hard as you think. In fact…

 I’ve discovered a simple three-step process
that any poet can follow to get published!

    Here’s what it’s all about…

     I first did the “happy dance” back in 1989. (Yes, I’ve been writing for a while!) I even got paid $100 for my first publication. (Not too shabby, especially since I would have done it for free.) But over the years, I had a lot more success publishing nonfiction than anything else. So I decided to find out why. How could I “crack the code” on publishing fiction and poetry?

     As I investigated, I learned a few things…

 There are thousands—yes, I said thousands
of legitimate markets for your poetry.
And many of them are eager to work with new writers!


    Now, let me caution you up front. You won’t get rich selling your poems. If you want to get rich from your writing, you’ll have to crank out schlock horror novels or something. Even the most successful poets don’t get wealthy from their work.

    But you can make some money. Although some publications only pay contributor’s copies (free copies of the magazine your poem appears in), many pay cash also. Some pay a few dollars, others up to several hundred dollars, per poem. But we aren’t in this for the money anyway—getting your work out there in front of others is what counts.

    You pour yourself into your poems…and when they’re published, you’ll know that you’ve truly and deeply touched other people. Getting published means that others recognize the value of your work. And your friends and acquaintances will know it too.

    I know what it’s like to be a frustrated writer…accumulating piles of manuscripts on your desk, wondering if any of them will ever see the light of day. But I’ve also learned over the years exactly how the industry works (I’ve been published many times under various pen names, do frequent work as an editor, and just had a book published this year).

 If you’re still a “frustrated” writer, 
I’m confident you can become a published writer soon…
once
you know how to do it.

    That’s why I’ve written an "Insider’s Guide" showing you my step-by-step system for getting your work published. Here’s what you’ll discover:

  • These famous magazines publish lots of poetry, yet if you send in your work (as so many do) and it’s not accepted, you can kill your career as a poet. (Hint: it has nothing to do with getting a bad reputation. page 13)
  • Greeting Card companies: are they a good market for you? The "Big 3" companies won't accept poems from outsiders...but here's how to break into the industry anyway! (p. 21)
  • An easy way to impress editors, and make them more receptive to your work…before they even read your poems! (p. 26)
  • How to find hundreds of places on the Internet that will gladly publish your work. (p. 16)

SPECIAL BONUS SECTION:
How to Avoid Poetry Scams!

    You’ve probably heard that there are scammers preying on poets and writers…taking advantage of our hopes and dreams in the most despicable way. And sadly, it’s true.

    I show you exactly what they do…how they try to cheat you…and how to avoid their traps. Once you know how they work, it’s easy to steer clear of them. (And once you learn how, I’d also ask you to share this information with all your friends. The only way to shut these criminals down is to take away their victims.)

    So, how much could you accomplish if you had this Guide? You could be a published poet soon…seeing your work in print again and again.

    That’s why you should read this book today. In fact, you could be reading it 5 minutes from now...

What’s a Resource Like This Worth?

    What is this worth…the ability to be a published poet? Knowing how to get your work in print…a steady stream of publications for the rest of your life? The public validation and thrill of being published over and over again?

    In a way, this book represents 16 years of my life. Everything I’ve learned about publishing, not only from my own experience but also from others’, is summed up here. If you were to have a book like this written for you, it would take a full-time researcher a week or more to dig out this kind of “insider” information. That would run you about $750 to $1,000 (I checked).

    That’s why this Guide is such a bargain at $19.77.

    Frankly, this is underpriced, and the price is going up soon. This Guide is new on the market, and I want to gather more testimonials and success stories from people who buy it. Once I have a few more, the price will go up to $27.77. But for now, you can get it for the much lower $19.77.

But... the book is yours to keep no matter what, as a "thank you" gift from me!

So you really can't lose. The book's yours no matter what!


    Could this be any fairer?
    But I’ll tell you what. I’ll also throw in, absolutely FREE, the following resource…

More comments from readers

As an aspiring poet I needed three major pieces of information: the quality of my writings, a "market" for my poetry and the opportunity to make a living out of it. The Guide gave me everything, and more. As I am so enthusiastic when writing, I found "the voice of reason" in your Guide. Thank you very much for giving me a guardian Angel.

Mr. Arthur:  Although I've only downloaded the Poetry Success Guide three or four days ago,  I have read enough of the book to know that I'm on to something big.  I anticipate using your information to make intelligent decisions in getting my poetry published.  Thanks for your help.

Just the suggestions on how to market my poetry have left me speechless.
