The Ministry of Poetic Affairs doesn’t only share poems and writes about poets. We decided to do something new. Something that we think will benefit poets. We introduced a new feature to our website: our webshop. In this webshop, you will find some useful tools. So, it’s time to help… You!
That creative mind, that is focussed on writing. There is nothing wrong with that. Don’t expect the backer to sell you a new pair of jeans. Don’t expect the writer to create an own website. That is exactly who you are: someone who wants to do what you are good at!
Yes, we are The Ministry of Poetic Affairs. We spread poetry across the globe. We promote and support poets. From all over the world. That is why we decided to do something more. To offer the chance for everyone to create a website.
Yes, you can focus on social media. It must be thrilling to see that people started following you. New likes, new comments … and then… Did you know, that the work you publish on social media isn’t really yours? It’s just like renting a room in a hotel. The room is free to use, but it is still property of someone else. Your website is yours and yours to keep! No one will decide about how your website looks and what options are available, except for you.
We realize that not everyone is able to create a nifty website. A website that shows your work and ensures that your work is to be found using search engines. Instead of not primarily focussing on social media, we offer you the chance to reach a wide audience.
This must be expensive, right?!
Building a website can be expensive, yes. Maintaining a website can be expensive too. Instead of focussing on expenses, you can see the website as an investment or a portfolio. This increases your value as a writer and as a poet.
To make sure, that we don’t present the same prices as many other companies and agencies, we searched for possibilities to make sure, you don’t pay too much.
