Thank you for your interest in Red Thread Poets.
FIRSTLY: if you would like to chat before doing anything else, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or through any of my links, on my poet pages.
SECONDLY: some folks really dislike forms, process, procedures etc., I really understand.
THIRDLY: A few thoughts
- Each poet / songwriter has 5 placements or pages available for their exclusive use. We want your 5 pages to be all about YOU, your work, your copyright, your personality, poems any length, any format.
- So, despite the ‘streaming feeling’ here, feel free to insert / ask for your uniqueness to shine through,
- As you have seen on the website, each poet has these 5 ‘pages’ – so we would love 5 poems, one for each page. However, there is flexibility with the number of poems on a page so you can actually have several poems – for example under ‘say’ a theme in one placement you can have as many as you like.
- We are using Barlow Condensed throughout all poems for the consistent experience of the reader, but if IT’S REALLY IMPORTANT for your work we have other fonts.
- You may like to have (i) a comment under each photograph, and (ii) a ‘preamble’ before and/or (iii) a ‘postamble’ at the end of each page. A preamble can be: date written, or your inspiration etc ; a ‘postamble’ can be a reference, a link, an acknowledgment, your inspiration etc.
- Great if you can record (audio on mp3) your poems as there will be many in our growing audience who love to hear the poems in your voice or by someone you have chosen (again it is optional),
- We love to splash the site with beauty and photographs, and would love a photograph with each placement – so a maximum of 5 … some people prefer no photograph, we like them as they add colour and interest – and a creative look – great for inspiration. You will see in the input doc below that we post the poem photographs at 2,000 pixels x 550 pixels – ‘wide and shallow’! You may not be able to do that – but we can for you – however word of warning if they are portrait only a part will show when squidged into 2,000 x 550!!! Another point – we can come up with photographs if you like – we would fit as closely to the poem and let you see them before we post them.
- YouTube video inks can be to a video version if you made one, or to a particular musical or video link that goes with / supports your work,
- What you see on Poet pages is all that is kept on the website, as there is no login at this point. Information we ask for below beyond that is on a secure private server not accessible to the public. We share nothing. See our Terms of Service and Privacy for more details.
- Yes, there is quite a bit of gathering together for this – but we trust you think it’s “SO WORTH IT”!!!
LASTLY: I look forward to meeting you and partnering with you, peterwill
