Wake: Up to Poetry
"The act of poetry is a rebel act."
Generation: Blogger Boomers
Here at WFUP we are actively working to expand our use of social media and blogging as a means to connect, share our thoughts, and listen to others. A recent study by NM Incite tracked over 181 million blogs worldwide in 2011, a drastic increase from the recorded 36 million blogs in 2006. Blogs have exploded, becoming one of the top modes of communication, advertisement, and instruction.
Our mission at WFUP is to reach out to other small presses like ourselves in hopes that we can foster a community to share thoughts, opinions, and support for the development of poetry. In these current economic times we believe it is important to connect with our fellow small publishers and commend their braves efforts to keep producing great literature despite hardships faced. So, this spring WFUP is turning over a new leaf and reaching out to other presses to extend our support. We recognize how important social media and blogging is as a tool to link up with other presses like ourselves and we are excited to join in the conversation. We hope you join us in our efforts to connect!
