While the Indian literary scene is bursting with publishers, the number of poetry publishers in India is very less. The reason a lot of publishers refrain from publishing poetry is the lack of audience. The increasing number of poets willing to publish their books and reach to the masses is a good thing. With more poetry books being published, we will see a rise in poetry readers.
Finding a poetry publisher in India is a tough task but not impossible; there are few vanity publishers who have published and marketed poetry books.
Why do a lot of self-publishers not publish poetry books?
The number of poetry publishers in India is less because only a handful of readers enjoy English poetry in India. On the contrary, Hindi Poetry Books do really good business and Hindi poetry publishers are always willing to take up another book for publishing. English is certainly the official language at the workplace but regional languages are preferred the most when it comes to Drama, Poetry, Shayari, and Movies.
