Who is the best poet in America? 

Perhaps you are? Or, perhaps you know someone you think is a wonderful poet though others may not even know that person.

We would like to think that real talent will distinguish itself but so many factors intervene that the question of who is the best poet in America really can’t be answered. Indeed, the question should always make for a rousing debate!

The problem is, however, that the politics of poetry, the competitive nature of people more broadly, leads to list making. Where there are lists, there are those on top, those on the bottom, and perhaps worse still, those left out.

You’ve found this page at my Poetrydoctortm website, so you may think a discussion about “the best poetry” is going to be biased. I suppose you will be correct in that my intention here is to present a sample of my work–a nearly complete collection of it–which you can use to gauge not only whether I am a good poet, but what you do and don’t like in poetry.

Please click the link below which will bring you to my poetry.  Find a book title and just read a bit. I’m not telling you I’m the best. But, after all these years in the poetry business, I think it’s time to see my audience expand. I am making my own “list.” Can’t wait for “theirs!”

On August 20th, 2015, Volusia County appointed its Poets Laureate. Dr. David B. Axelrod, and M. B. McLatchey now have the rare distinction of being one of only two pairs of Laureates serving the same region simultaneously in the United States. Volusia County, Florida, joins Prince William County, Virginia, in welcoming two poets to the post.

CLICK HERE TO VIEW THE VOLUSIA POET LAUREATE WEB PAGES hosted by CHI, Creative Happiness Institute, Inc.

The role of the Volusia Poet Laureate is to “Promote the reading, writing, and appreciation of poetry throughout the County and in so doing, promote greater literacy, cultural activity and tourism.” A selection committee advertised open nominations, screened nominees, and recommended both poets to the County Council with the assumption that one would be appointed. Wanting to provide even more benefit to their constituents, the Council, in turn decided to make both candidates a Poet Laureate.

To the many public events and performances Dr. Axelrod already presents, he plans to fund raise for and institute a Young Poets Mentoring Program. An earlier, similar project he instituted resulted in the publication of nine chapbooks by poets, ages 16 to 24, which were the result of pairings with established poets who worked with the young poets until a manuscript was perfected.

Other plans are for a variety of new venues throughout Volusia County, as well as visits to libraries and public schools.

LAUREATE NEWS

Dr. Axelrod has initiated a Young Poets Mentoring Program, in association with Kevin Campbell, who will institute a “Brave New Poets” performance venue, and Dylan Emerick-Brown who will be the Public Schools Liason.

The program will invite young poets to apply for study with established, published poets. Young poets who are accepted into the program will work to complete a body of poetry, selections from which will appear in an anthology &/or be published as a chapbook.

ARE YOU READY?

Are you ready to publish your book of poetry? The question is worth asking for poets at any level of ac-complishment, but particularly for those about to bring out their first book. One great strength in America – and any country – is the freedom to share your thoughts with others. The advent of desktop publishing has made the press ever freer. The ability to assemble and publish a book, however, does not assure that you are ready to bring out a book. You owe it to yourself and others to responsibly exercise your abilities as an author and poet and, as much as possible, aim to be professional.

It doesn’t hurt to ask yourself why you want a book. In fact, you could start by asking yourself why you write. Poetry is a venerable art form, coming to us from the earliest oral traditions of incantation and prayer, record keeping and storytelling, healing and, yes, humor. If you write for yourself, you certainly should revise for others. As soon as you write poetry you will hear that art is not for all markets. That is, a commercial writer analyzes a market and writes to sell. An artist creates from whatever inner need and, thus, may not appeal to many people.

If you want to publish a book of poetry to make lots of money, good luck. Mainstream publishers, if not profes-sional poets themselves, will tell you that poetry doesn’t sell. If that is true, it is not for lack of poets. Throw a rock and you will hit a dog or a poet. Poets are every-where. There’s hardly a person who hasn’t written a po-em at some point, whether in the throes of love, at a time of great loss, or just on a bathroom wall. But long before Marshall McLuhan declared the printed word was dead, it was apparent that books were a hard sell.

There is an entire art of publicizing, distributing, and selling your book. If writing poetry is the song, selling it is the dance. You should take pleasure in sharing your work with others, but that might mean, simply, showing your poems to friends, sharing it in writing workshops, or learning how to perform it well publically. Just don’t expect to make yourself rich as a poet, and that is as much because of human nature as because poetry doesn’t sell.

You can do everything right – writing a truly gifted book of poetry, designing and producing a magnificent book, buying the best wine and cheese for your book party. People – fellow poets and writers and even your good friends – will gladly drink your wine and eat the cheese, but as often they will leave without buying a book. What is that about? It certainly predates any col-lapse of the economy or even antipathy for poetry. Get-ting people to part with a dollar isn’t easy, and family members are going to expect you to give them a free copy. (Make even your mother pay!)

Of course, you may have, more than just extraordinary lines of poetry, the best sales pitch ever. It doesn’t hurt to be optimistic and it certainly is good to have a mar-keting plan. But shed the idea that you want to publish a book – particularly of poetry – to make money. Do, however, understand that a well-produced, inexpensive book of poems is very likely to earn its money back and then some if you do things right. It is not enough to ex-ercise your right to publish. It is your responsibility to bring out the best book you can. You may be a happy amateur, but when you reach out to others with a book, why wouldn’t you want to present them with the very best you can produce?

Bronson Speedway  hosted the annual Daytona Antique Auto Racing Association’s national event. David Axelrod was there with his book, The SPEED Way, which is the first and only book of poetry devoted entirely to NASCAR, stock cars and growing up around cars and racing. Gainesville Television Network,  GTN’s Joanna Wise put together this video piece to feature “the sights and sounds of what drivers call their childhood dream.”
