Looking for a good book publisher or artist

Blog Posted:12/29/2015 12:22:00 AM

Greetings all my fellow writers and poets,

For some time now, I have had the dream and aspiration to put together a book of my finest poems, and get it published. So I too can share with the world my passion of writing, and hopefully go down in history as one of the greats. But, I am having trouble finding a good publisher and dont really know where to start after having gotten a decent amount of writings together. At first, i was thinking i needed an artist to help bring my poems to life. But i have looked around, talked to people, and haven't really been able to find a good artist that's dedicated in helping me in my cause. So that was a bit of a problem. But now i have another idea to go off, and at the same time, im not completely outruling my need or desire to find a good dedicated artist. I'm just kinda hoping, someone out there will be able to help me with either finding an artist i can work with, or assist me in moving onward to the next step in fulfilling my dream in completing my book. So, if anyone knows of any artists that are into drawing dark works such as heavy metal magazine type stuff or nightmare before Christmas type, or a good publisher thats trust worthy and able to help me out. I thank you all for your time, and to all my fellow writers and poets out there, keep writing and stay creatively motivated.


Yours Truly,


Criss Tripp

Hi Criss. Do you have a university or art academy in your town/city? They usually have a place to put up want ads! I am not sure what you are willing to pay the artist (i.e. an advance or a portion of the royalties?) In Canada, poetry books are seldom illustrated, save for the cover. The best publisher for poetry in Canada is Brick. Their acceptance rate is very low and it takes two years from the acceptance for the book to go into print; However, they are the best in the industry. Best wishes on your project. Cyndi

You may wish to ask Edwin Hofert he is on Soup and you could ask VeeBdosa (Ron Arbuthnot -Ron Wilson) who is also on soup
