Ideas for local and Internet promotion of SFPA and genre poetry*
- Add an SFPA banner and link to our site on your web page or e-mail signature.
- Encourage writers and readers of poetry to join our Yahoo! listserv: groups.yahoo.com/group/sfpanet/
- Buy gift SFPA memberships or gift copies of the Rhysling Anthology, Dwarf Stars Anthology, and Science Fiction Poetry Handbook.
- Attend and participate in local poetry readings, open mikes, and slams, and bring copies of SFPA flyers for attendees to take with them.
- Suggest that your local or regional Cons include poetry panels and readings in their programming. Volunteer to moderate a genre poetry round robin. Bring SFPA flyers to Cons to distribute and to place on the free promotional items table.
- When poets ask where they can submit their poetry, refer them to the SFPA Markets page, which lists both paying and nonpaying markets.
With grateful acknowledgments to Mike Allen, Joshua Gage, Robin Mayhall, Tim Mullins, Karen A. Romanko and Gene van Troyer for their assistance in creating these promotional materials.
