Yesterday, I found an article about a man who used to sell his poetry door-to-door and on street corners. He made his living this way for nine years, 1966 to 1975. The first 2 years were in Berkeley, California, where he sold door-to-door. The subsequent seven years were in New York City, where he vended on street corners.
I think this is a very interesting approach to the problem of being noticed as a writer. I don’t know, however, if this is a viable way to make a living today. What do you think? Could someone make a living this way today? Would it only work in a big city? Tell me in the comments.
