I wrote a mother load of poetry from 1995-2005. I also have two books from my great grandmother who also wrote collections of poetry throughout her life. I am thinking of getting in the publishing business and releasing a poetry book of my own with two of the books my great grandmother wrote.
Susan Straight may not believe I could write short stories to save my life in a lower division creative writing class at UC Riverside, but I could indeed write the poetry.
I think the big issue for me is to renew the copyrights for my great grandmother’s work and perhaps sell them on the Nook Store at Barnes and Noble for like 2.49 a book and perhaps release a book where both of them be printed together on a hardcover book for those who like the printed word on paper.
