POETRY COLLECTIONS

Indigo Dreams publish full collections which we feel have a little something special to offer.  We rarely publish collections in excess of 72 pages, including non-poetry pages.

 

Poems may have been published online or in magazines / anthologies but not as a collection. New, unpublished work always preferred. Please state where any previously published poems being submitted have been published.

With a capacity of 2/3 published collections each month, both Indigo Dreams and the poet must be confident of achieving sales levels that will give a worthwhile return on time and outlay.

 

The majority of poetry sales come from the poet's own readings and contacts. Trade sales are generally insignificant compared to Mail Order and author sales. You MUST be prepared promote your collection to achieve maximum sales.

 

Please send your final, complete collection to us as one WORD document set in 10 point Palatino Linotype, maximum 36 lines per page, including title and stanza breaks. Please be aware of line lengths if submitting on A4
