Author Spotlight

Author Spotlight

Here at The Poetics Project, we don’t review books. We love to read books, stories, and poems from a wide range of subjects by a large mix of authors, and reviewing books requires a certain kind of judgement we don’t feel we need to make for our readers. With that said, we do love featuring authors and their work, whether you’re a writer whose had a piece featured in a literary magazine or you’ve just had your first book published. Although many of our readers are book lovers, we also have many subscribers who are writers; because of this, our Author Spotlights focus on the work itself as well as the writing process.

If you’re a publisher or author with a title you’d like featured, send us an email at

Note: Depending on the volume of requests, we may not be able to spotlight each author who contacts us.

How to Prepare:

In order to feature your piece, we will need some of the following items:

  • a high-resolution photo of the author
  • a high-resolution photo of the book cover (if applicable)
  • an excerpt from the piece (100-200 words)
  • a short bio of the author (100 words)
