PRETTY POUND PER POEM PLEASE

 

project

PRESS RELEASE

 

In our time and age, we must be generous and innovative with the distribution of poems and stories, especially those in translation and aimed at young, family and developing readers who may not have access to expensive print and e-publications.

 

Give The World Academy – our e-publishing project focused on Polish literature and culture in English language translation – is now launching a new initiative called:

 

PPPPP = PRETTY POUND PER POEM PLEASE

 

A selection of individual poems and books of poetry are now available to download free of charge from our online portal – the only thing we ask is for a voluntary donation of “One UK Pound Sterling Per Poem” = Pretty Pound Per Poem Please - made to Apart Arts, a UK based non-profit organisation which has been delivering migrant media projects since 2006.

 

Polish poems, songs and stories in English translation will be uploaded, totally free of charge, onto our Give The World YouTube Channel, where everyone can listen to them to their hearts' content from all over the world – an accessible, sustainable and innovative method of presenting literature in translation.

 

Our Books & Beyond section is organised in three section lines:

 

INSTANT ACCESS:

 

Visitors can instantly download PDF poems and stories, free of charge – the only thing we ask is a voluntary donation of £1 UK pound per poem or story, which helps cover our organisation's operating and our artists' living expenses.

 

ACCESS UPON REQUEST:

Visitors can request PDF poems and stories, free of charge – but unlike the INSTANT ACCESS publications, these PDFs will come locked with passwords to prevent unauthorised distribution and pirating of content – our regular wish for a voluntary donation of £1 UK pound per poem and story is still very much welcome.

 

VIP = Give the World Very Impressive Publications:

 

Visitors can order books issued with ISBN numbers & printed on paper, to be posted to them as hard copies, as well as electronic and audio books which will come at regular retail prices.

 

By selecting from our GIVE THE WORLD ACADEMY AUTHOR LIST (see below) visitors will explore the world of Polish writing – much of it unknown to readers around the globe – and can then select either free or paid for content:.
