Call for poets!

I’m always interested in discussing interview possibilities with poets who wish to be featured on my Poetic Asides blog, which gets a high amount of daily traffic that is always on the rise (thanks to my wonderful and loyal readers, of course, who are also poets). Here are the guidelines on how to contact me, whether you’re a poet or a publisher.

For Poets: Please send an email to robert.brewer@fwmedia.com with “Poetic Asides Interview: Author” in your subject line. The body of the message should include the following information: your full name, important publishing credits, anything else that is interesting about you, upcoming projects, links to blogs or Web sites, and whatever else you think might be of interest to me or the Poetic Asides readership (who are poets).

For Publishers: Please send an email to robert.brewer@fwmedia.com with “Poetic Asides Interview: Publisher” in your subject line. In the body of the message, please include the same information as for poets (mentioned above). Also, feel free to mail over promotional materials, such as recent or upcoming books, press releases, etc. to: Robert Lee Brewer, 5003 Woodiron Dr., Duluth GA 30097. I will review and contact if interested.

Also, for readers, if you have any special requests of poets or other characters related to poetry, please send those along to me to consider and/or to follow up on.
