This is a rather strange poem. As an independent platform for poetry, we have something to tell you. What better way to do this: with poetry. We are The Ministry of Poetic Affairs and we are in search of new editors and scouts. Are you in our out?
Is your thing
Is it that addicting?
Is there no ending,
just a beginning?
It doesn’t matter; pro or amateur
You can become an editor!
We want to know
if you are willing to help us grow
Write for us, about verse, poetry, prose
Scout for us, to help us find those
whose work we should publish
or whose work we could republish
Are you in or out?
Are you that stout?
Are you our new editor or scout?
Are you willing to promote
that what we wrote?
This is match day
And are you willing to play?
Should we dare you
to do what you do?
For us, the Ministry of Poetic Affairs
— the independent platform that features stars
and unknown poets
Just to show its
beauty, power, magic and more
That is our focus
We don’t just adore,
NO, we love to share,
to promote and just to care!
So, what are we searching for? In the first place, we are in search for those who want to write for us. The copyrights to the articles you provide – about poets, poetry and related subjects – belongs to you. We only provide a platform for you to use. Just as we do for the poets whose work we promote on daily basis.
Your reward for your editorial work: get the help you need to get your writings known to a wide audience, a free website and all the help with the integration with social media. In the future, we can offer you the chance to get paid for what you write (this depends on sponsorship and advertorials).
Are you able to provide a minimum of two articles per month, you are able to publish your work directly on our website.
If you believe that you are more the motivator than the editor, pay attention! Our scouts or ambassadors scout social media for new talents. They communicate with the poets and writers across the globe to convince them to get their work published on our platform. Thus making The Ministry of Poetic Affairs grow.
We believe that the time is now to stress out the importance of growth. We believe that we are the perfect partner when it comes to promoting poetry. We give everyone a fair chance to get their work published on our website. This has benefitted many poets, from all over the world.
If you are a representative for a company or organisation, you can also help. In the future, we want to offer a decent commission for those who write for us. Therefore we offer the chance to buy advertising space on our website and newsletters we send out. This will not only help to grow, it also ensures that our free and independent poetry platform is ready for the future.
So, what’s next? It’s really simple: contact us and explain what you can do for us. We are also open to guest bloggers and other suggestions to ensure our growth. Remember, this isn’t just our growth: this is the growth of the poetry community. This beautiful community isn’t limited by boundaries. We believe that this community makes this world more beautiful.
The poem in this article is written by Harm Jagerman, the owner of The Ministry of Poetic Affairs.
