I’m looking for some sort of publishing option that isn’t going to cost me a ton of money.
I have a children’s poem anthology. I have been told publishers don’t want poetry for children. I think this is not right.

Please let me know if you have advice or ideas.

    1. For whatever reason, everyone I have spoken to said that poetry is of no interest to children anymore. What!?!?!? I loved Shel Silverstein and Dr. Seuss. I write Cat in the Hat Fan Fiction all the time. I just have to keep searching.
