Hi. It’s exciting. I want to set up a poetry store.
My name is Pete Marchesi. I have a multitude of poetry books on Amazon. Look me up. It is what I am about. At this point, I am looking for a major contributor. It is my intention to set up a poetry store. It will be selling various things. There will be a poetry magazine. I need a financial contributor. There are wages to be paid and rent. I found a small space in Laguna Niguel. This is something I am very serious about.
I need you to be serious too. You must have a love for poetry. Depending on donations, we might even have a Press as well. This would be great for our society. There are too few Presses about. And the written word is so important to us. It is how we protest society. We have to do it well.
Besides the Press, there is the space. This could act as a gathering point... for Poets and like-minded individuals. Members can gather there, read pertinent books on the poetry movement.
Keeping Ourselves Honest. Is basically my mission statement. Our major contributor can have a lot of say. For me, I just want a living wage out of it. We will be able to hold workshops at the space. One of the usual workshops would enable members to self-publish on KDP. Kindle Direct Publishing. I would be able teach you how to upload poetry books... There will be a core membership of a seventy-five people. It is my first order of business to gather the members. So let me know.
Membership is a hundred dollars per month. With a full membership, I will be able to begin. Besides the poetry magazine, there will be poetry competitions for members and interested parties. We will be inviting established Poets to do workshops.
This is an interesting venture. I am hoping for a big response. Any kind of donation will be accepted.
The best thing about the project will be the space. Members can use it to write... and there will be videos on contemporary Poets and our poetry movement. There will also be coffee.
The space I am looking at is in the Crown Valley Business Park. It is affordable.
You will also be able to have poetry readings there. It is a wonderful idea. Please contribute. Laguna Niguel is a wealthy area. I am glad to be a part of it. It reflects on us the need to support the Arts.
Please let me know.
You will be shown, for free, how to publish with KDP. Kindle Direct Publishing. It is a wonderful and useful way of publishing. I have over five hundred books with them right now. I am interested in Locals. We are right off Camino Capistrano, near the train station in Laguna Niguel. Please join me. I have 2 members so far. And the membership drive continues...
Thank you very much!
