Scribd, haiku and ‘When I Think Sky’

It seems like haiku poets get an even smaller slice of the pie than poets in general. Many anthologized, very talented artists are hard to find, most books out of print. But I just found Alexis Rotella for free on Scribd. If it’s good for an artist like her, I should give it a try, I thought.

So, I put up my own chapbook that I threw together as a test case, “When I Think Sky”.

If you are looking to get your stuff out there, you may want to try it! It’s about time.

Could the iTunes of the lit world finally be coming? I am surprised that writers haven’t been freed by the web in the same way that musicians were freed from record companies when iTunes hit big!

In that spirit, I have to say, Scribd seems worth it….Will it catch on?
