15 Days of Poetry
Challenge

  • What happens if I do not complete the challenge?
    Life can be unpredictable, and we understand that unforeseen circumstances may arise. While the challenge encourages daily engagement, we understand that circumstances vary for each participant. If you find yourself unable to finish the challenge, you still retain ownership of the poems you've written, and any progress made are valuable contributions to your artistic growth. Should you wish to revisit the challenge at a later time or adapt it to your schedule, the doors are always open.
  • How much are chapbooks usually priced?
    We typically recommend a list price of $14.99. This suggested price takes into account factors like production costs and your royalties. However, you have the flexibility to adjust the price based on your preferences and own considerations and market.
  • Do the poems have to have a title?
    While titles can add a special touch, they are not mandatory. You have the freedom to decide whether or not to give titles to your poems.
  • When does the challenge start?
    You can start the challenge any day of the year that you wish! The flexibility allows you to embark on your poetry journey whenever it suits you.
  • Is there an entry fee, and how do I pay it?
    Yes, there is a fee of $100, which goes to the work we do to professionally format and publish your chapbook. Secure payment is required for participation and due on or before your start date. You will receive a payment request via email.
  • Can I make up for a missed day if I skip due to work or other commitments?
    Absolutely! Life happens, and we understand that. You have the flexibility to catch up on missed days at your own pace. The challenge is designed to fit into your schedule.
  • Is there a specific theme or topic for the poetry collection?
    Participants are encouraged to choose their own theme for their poetry collections - or even no theme at all. This is an opportunity to express your unique voice and perspective.
  • What happens if I can't come up with a title for my book?
    Don't worry! We're here to provide guidance and support to help you shape your poetic vision.
  • What if I want to use a pen name/pseudonym for my poetry chapbook?
    You will use your legal name for your Amazon KDP account, but can use a pen name for your book. During the book registration process, you'll have the opportunity to specify the desired author name, which can be your pen name.
  • What if I already have an Amazon KDP account?
    Then you are already one step ahead! We can seamlessly integrate your new chapbook with your existing KDP account. Your prior familiarity with KDP will enhance your journey as you navigate the process with ease.
  • Who are the major online retailers?
    Barnes & Noble, Books-a-Million, Walmart, and Target, as well as others such as Thrift Books, Bookshop.org, and more.
  • How are the collections published?
    All participating poets will have their collections professionally formatted and published as chapbooks. You will receive 100% of the royalties from book sales, retain full rights to your work, and have the option to order author copies all from your own account.
  • What is the 15 Days of Poetry Challenge?
    The 15 Days of Poetry Challenge is a creative endeavor that invites poets to write and share a poem each day for 15 days. Participants will have their collections published as chapbooks, and keep all rights and royalties. We'll just help you get it out into the world!
  • Do I receive a refund if I cannot complete the challenge?
    Absolutely. We understand that life can bring unexpected changes. If, for any reason, you find yourself unable to complete the 15 Days of Poetry Challenge and decide not to publish your book, we offer a full refund. Your satisfaction and comfort in your creative journey are our priorities. To initiate a refund, simply reach out to our Publishing Specialist. While we encourage participants to embrace the full challenge experience, we respect individual circumstances and choices. Our aim is to make your poetry journey a positive and accommodating experience.
  • Is book cover design included, and what can I expect?
    Yes, we provide a simple and elegant book cover design that complements the essence of your work. The cover design is included as part of the overall package.
  • Can I provide my own book cover design?
    Certainly! If you have a specific vision for your book cover and would like to provide your own design, we welcome your creativity. During the publishing process, you'll have the option to submit your custom book cover. We're here to accommodate and celebrate your unique creative input.
