Self Publishing News for April 15th

Imagine publishing a fully-formatted, professionally-designed
volume of your poetry. Imagine simply “cutting’n’pasting”
your poems into designated areas of an already-formatted
document. Fast. Easy.Imagine, still, that elements like justification, centering, page spreads, margins, page numbering, graphical elements, and title drops were already taken care of!That’s how easy it is to publish with the Poetry Publishing Kit. Each kit comes with two files:Use the “Easy” file…

  • as building blocks to add more pages
  • move poems around
  • add or replace included graphics
  • further customize your book however you want

Or use the “Easier” file…

  • to simply cut n paste 30 poems directly into the file
  • add each respective title above each of your poems
  • accommodates a wide variety of poetry lengths

Both files are included in the Kit. Start with the “Easier” way and then as you become comfortable, move to the “Easy” file to add more poems for a second volume.

Then when you’re ready to publish your book of poetry, you will have a beautiful, professionally-formatted manuscript to submit, as-is, for high-quality black/white printing.

Both files are Microsoft Word 2003 files, so be sure that is a compatible format for your computer before purchasing the Publishing Kit.

Important Delivery Details: Once you click the Add to Cart button and complete your purchase,
your Poetry Publishing Kit will be available for instant download within the “My Toolkit” area of your
Publishing Account. Each file is approximately 50 MB. This is 100 MB of instant publishing support!

Still not sure? Flip through the Poetry Publishing Kit to see if it will work for your poetry.
