Amanda Hocking, the writer who made millions by self-publishing online
A couple of years ago, Amanda Hocking was penniless and frustrated, having spent years fruitlessly trying to interest traditional publishers in her work. She needed to raise a few hundred dollars so, in desperation, put her unpublished novel on the Kindle and Amazon. See how this then changed her life and the publishing life.
Forgotten Letters, an anthology of literature by dyslexic writers, is the first of its kind: promoting the creativity of dyslexic writers. Edited by Naomi Folb, the founder and owner of RASP publishing, Forgotten Lettersincludes poems and works from both renowned and emerging writers with dyslexia, such as Thomas G. West - described as 'the best of the best', Benjamin Zephaniah - voted the nation’s third favourite poet of all time in a BBC poll in 2009, Billy Childish - co-founder of Stuckism Art Movement and many other successful writers, including Caroline Gardner (https://www.facebook.com/pages/Caroline-Gardner-BA-/193834645381 ), who has contributed to four previous Forward Poetry anthologies.
Local Poet, Enid Hewitt, informs the Grantham Journal about her recent published poem dedicated to the royal couple. Enid was invited by Forward Poetry to create and submit a poem dedicated to the royal couple, giving her the opportunity for her poem to be published and the chance to have her poem sent to the couple as a wedding gift.
Forward Poetry's ethos has always been to act as a bridge to publication rather than a barrier. This, along with our passion for poetry and creative writing, has seen a humble family business evolve into the biggest publisher of new poetry in the world. We understand that poetry is subjective, that everyone writes in a different style and that what one person can love, another can hate! Our collections showcase a variety of themes, writing styles and poets from all walks of life. They are carefully edited and compiled to celebrate and complement the craft that all of our contributors enjoy poetry.
