World Class Poetry Promotional Chapbook Submission Guidelines

If you have a poetry book published and would like to expand the opportunities available to sell more copies, World Class Poetry offers you the chance to publish a small selection of poems from your book in a digital chapbook format and distribute it to our 15,000+ monthly visitors. We will promote your chapbook through our ever-growing website, our blog, and our newsletter/e-zine, Hyperbole.

This is a great opportunity for poets to expand their marketing power by leveraging our readership. It costs you nothing. We charge nothing for the service and take no commissions from you for selling your book.
