With the success of Rupi Kaur's book Milk and Honey, poetry has recently seen an influx of published collections - and poets are taking the same route as Kaur. Amazon's company CreateSpace allows writers to self-publish their work and sell it through Amazon. Kaur published Milk and Honey independently in 2014, but her collection was so successful that it was picked up by Andrew McMeel Publishing for a reprint in 2014.

Many of these authors are also hoping for similar success as Kaur, so please consider purchasing their collections and leaving reviews on Amazon!
