Exactly. I have been writing poetry for the last 20 odd years and have been published in the Statesman on a few occassions. But somehow, there is no publisher for Poetry ( I write in English and Urdu) in the country. Its either "Poetry doesn't sell" or "we don't publish poetry" or "you pay, we will print" . Its been two years now, but no progress. Any pointers ?

And how much does it cost to publish a book of poetry?


I would like to know how is one paid for simple proses ?

Prof Murali Sivaramakrishnan

Yes, I cannot disagree with this. We speak a great deal of poetics and theory in our class rooms and read fiction and non fiction as part of our syllabus, evaluate student dissertations on fiction writers and theorists. But poetry sadly poetry stands completely neglected. The roots of our imagination perhaps are drying out. Worse is the case with publishing: I have three volumes that fortunately have been selling well. I am on the look out for the fourth and fifth. Strangely enough many of my poems are run in journals and reviewed well-- but who wants to purchase a volume of poetry?

Cyberwit is for poets who want to publish their poetry. Our published Anthologies and Journal Taj Mahal Review have poems that are sensuous, picturesque and impassioned. The poems reveal a fine combination of human elements of romance and the mystic & everyday realities.

Cyberwit has published a myriad of new poets, and an increasingly large number of collections of verse. The significance of Poetry has not declined, and the 21st century seems to be the Golden Era of English Poetry. The name of Cyberwit is known to readers in several countries.

Cyberwit publishes poems in English, some truly literary gems which might otherwise be unknown. We publish Poetry Anthology and Literary Journal to enhance poetic sensibilities.

Dear Sir,
May we draw your kind attention that we want to publish our poems thro’ your publishing house. We know it well that manuscript required to be submitted to you. But it is difficult for us because of our poor alchemical infrastructure.

Please browse our web

If any thing positive comes out of you editor-ing [wholesome than editing] please give us feedback and oblige.

I am a Physician by profession and a writer and poet too. Many of my collections of short stories and novels have been published in my mother tongue (Oriya language).I compose poems in English mostly on social values, blind beliefs and child abuse.I am interested to publish my poems. My poems are regularly posted in some of the poetry websites in USA and UK and are highly acclaimed by reviewers and readers.I have never tried earlier for this purpose thinking that no publisher would take a risk of publishing poems of a new unknown poet.

Sadly the name of poetry has been ruined with time with not mediocre but terrible poetry being published. Of course these books dont sell and so publishers have now stopped publishing poetry because its not commercially viable.
Then on the other hand good poetry by the enlightened ones will sell for thousands of years as they defy time and permeate with the essence of god.Poetry originates from India the Holy Vedas the most ancient spiritual text and many other masterpieces like the Ramayana, Bhagwat Gita,Guru Granth Sahib etc have been written in poetry the most condensed and highest form of philosophy possible only by the enlightened ones as it is considered as a mental exercise of the highest order something an unenlightened one cannot do.

My book Ponder Awhile is very highly ranked internationally over Rabindranath Tagore in English poetry and Inspirational and Religious poetry and I am still trying to get published by a good publisher.If we want to progress then poetry should be published on merit on not by contacts or connections as is presently done.

I believe the poetry standard in English is currently pathetic in the country.
