13:42:56 From Brandy Lane to Everyone : So…. is it better for a poet to do chapbooks as opposed to larger books??? (hindsight is 20/20)
13:44:30 From Linda Trott Dickman to Everyone : It depends on the content
13:46:30 From Linda Trott Dickman to Everyone : or go to the public library and study poetry books of all sizes.
13:47:35 From Diane Ward to Everyone : Let me underscore the importance of looking at your competition and doing your homework.
13:47:50 From Linda Trott Dickman to Everyone : I read a chapbook by poet Micah Ling where she had three sections in her poetry book. They were tied together by a theme.
13:48:02 From Mark Blickley to Everyone : Amanda, I love theater and define myself as a playwright who writes in the genres. Happy to meet another drama devotee and am impressed that you act as well as write. Am interested in viewing your performance art work. Glad we will both be in Red Penguin’s upcoming monologue anthology.
13:48:18 From Brandy Lane to Everyone : Is it better to stagger poetry types? My first book was all love poetry (I have another) but I also have mental health and nature poetry… Is it best to go in the series or break it up?
13:48:55 From Stephanie Larkin to Everyone : 20 books 50K
13:49:17 From Brandy Lane to Everyone : I am there… and I am sooooo lost!!!!!

13:49:47 From Amanda Montoni to Everyone : Mark, happy to meet you too! Can’t wait to read your monologue(s)!
13:51:42 From Diane Ward to Everyone : I performed in three plays for aspiring playwrights recently. All of these experiences helping each other with our craft are worthwhile encounters. This grew their fanbase.
13:53:51 From Brandy Lane to Everyone : Facebook is changing the way they do pages also… they are clamping down on sharing or groups that share each other. The algorithm is making it harder to be seen.
13:54:27 From Diane Ward to Everyone : The email list works!
13:54:43 From Janet Walter to Everyone : Nice to meet so many theater people here. My first major writing was a collaboration with three other people on a play for my Temple theater group based on a number of songs from Broadway, and I went on to spend 12 years producing our annual productions, and teaching a kids Drama class.
13:54:51 From Brandy Lane to Everyone : Since Instagram is now owned by Facebook, they are changing as well… I have noticed my reach and likes have dropped since the rollout of the reels. If you have a reel, you will be seen more.
13:56:10 From Linda Trott Dickman to Everyone : I have an appointment soon. Will have to duck out.
13:56:21 From Linda Trott Dickman to Everyone : So good to be with you all.
13:56:23 From Brandy Lane to Everyone : I was also a musical theater and dance major. I have sung Christian contemporary as well with Honeytree and Richie Furay as well as performed two years in a row with the Gettys on their Christmas tour (the Fort Wayne choir group) 🙂 Love to see so much talent in this room.
13:57:39 From Amanda Montoni to Everyone : I made a poetry reel at about 5 pm yesterday, and it got 2K views in just 10 minutes

14:02:25 From Brandy Lane to Everyone : It hurt a lot of Insta poets….
14:03:25 From Brandy Lane to Everyone : Even Alfa and Nausicaa, S.A. Quinox and Melody Lee were affected. Many of the insta poets and facebook poetry influencers saw their sales PLUMMET… since Facebook changed.
14:03:33 From Diane Ward to Everyone : Nice to meet everyone. I have to leave . Thank you. Remain safe everyone. We’ll be in touch.
