    Publishing of poetry

    How do I do this....

    I'm not allowed to work and I'm on the streets. I write poetry. Is there any way I can profit from it? Could use the money but more importantly I want it to be known that I wrote it before I die out here..

    Your best bet is to submit things to literary journals via submittable. That, or print up some poems and try to sell your work on the street, but depending on where you live, that may be considered a form of busking and be illegal or at least frowned upon. Why aren't you allowed to work?

    I'm homeless. In the application process I get screened out because I don't have a permanent residence. I also don't have a good resume So I'm just not picked. And I'm too poor for a phone to apply for jobs because apparently you have to text to apply now instead of just going in. It's a full time job being homeless, walking all day and night, surviving, etc. Libraries don't help. Can't concentrate on reading. Always something you know. Can't even enjoy a hobby anymore.

    Really just want to publish this poem because to me it's a masterpiece with multiple meanings and perspectives. A true work of art. If no one likes it so be it. I just want to share it.

    Lol maybe I'll print out the poem and hand them out. Just to see what happens. They'll probably be assholes to me. :/

    If there are popular pubs that advertise 'open mike' days or nights, you could also read a few of your poems aloud and hope you'll get somebody's attention after the performance. And hopefully the person will be helpful and sympathetic to your situation if you explain yourself (your needs and interests).

    Because of credit. Imagine someone else getting big off my poem. :/ then no one thinks I wrote it.

    sell it on amazon
    tho i don't know who's gonna buy
    u can write a book of poetry that actually comes with hidden meanings about the end of the world like nostradamus did
    then u can title it in such a way that you make it unclear if it's about the apocalypse or what
    try to find slam poetry events near your place and read it to people, on the metro as well, it's pretty difficult to be relevant in anything related to self expression, there's just too much competition

    you can also start a videoblog on youtube about it

    I don't think it's really about self expression. To me it's a construct of beauty, mathematical in nature - and with hidden meanings to a particular mind which can see past that ordinary, standard way of reading and interpreting words. It's something one might like but not understand, or perhaps understand after a long time.

    I've done nostradamus like poetry before. I didn't enjoy the nightmares.... Nor would I be inclined to being a prophet for others safety and well being. Why would I make others drink the kool aid of being protected, only to be assassinated by blindness. Prophetic sense shouldn't be contained into an individual, as the whole of society becomes dependent on forecasts and hence follows instruction - as opposed to levelling up their own sixth sense to further strengthen their own ability to perceive and act when it's time for them to act. It's better to not divide, at least permanently, in that way.

    Though in emergency cases I can see there being a point in becoming prophetic again.. It's not something I'll walk into willingly though.

    This is a different kind of genre of poetry. Its more about existence and making sense of hard to believe things (magic).

    The main concern is that standard expression is through things like Snapchat and Instagram, pictures or video. Words not so much.
