The mission of the Poetry Super Highway is to expose as many people to as many other people’s poetry as possible.

What?

Send a book – Get a book. In February 2022, the Poetry Super Highway will coordinate a great free exchange of poetry publications amongst poets worldwide.

It’s not a contest. There are no judges, entry fees, winners, or losers.

Last year 89 poets participated both sending their book and receiving another poet’s book from another randomly selected participant

By agreeing to participate, someone will be exposed to your poetry, and you will be exposed to someone else’s poetry.

How?

To participate you must volunteer to mail one copy of one poetry book that you have written to one other person participating. Just one book. In exchange, you will receive in the mail one copy of one poetry book written by a different participating poet.

Please note it is a circular exchange. You will be sending your book to a different poet than you will be receiving one from.

E-books are not eligible for the Great Poetry Exchange. (Save those for our annual e-Book Free-For-All in November!) Your book must be a physical entity. Even if it’s self-published, or ‘one of one’ that you printed from your computer and stapled together…but please, no e-books.

In early March, we will randomly assign the books to each participant and email you the name and address of the person you are supposed to send your book to.

We will also list your book and description on this web page along with the link to your website for all to see. In addition, we will list the new books in our weekly e-mailed update which goes out to thousands of people.

Please note, as the Great Poetry Exchange is open to everyone on planet Earth, it’s possible that you will be required to send your book to someone outside of your own country which will, of course, cost you more in postage than it would to send it domestically.

Also as our readership our primarily English speakers, included books must be written in English or at least include an English translation.

Also. we’ll ask that you send us an e-mail in March once your book has actually been sent so we can keep track and make sure that all participants who send a book also get one.

You also must agree to send out your book within 2 weeks of being notified of who to send your book to.

To submit your book, please go to our
