- Have you attempted to have your poems made into songs of worship?
I've been attempting for over 3 years to find someone to work with me to convert my poetry into songs. So far, no one has been willing to step up to this challenge. Had someone during the 4th quarter of last year express some interest; surprisingly, he closed his website and has ignored my queries since; not sure how to interpret his actions. I thought he may give his website a makeover and resume conversations with me.
My current church has no music ministry and the bulk of the church's general population are retired with no interest in poetry or music. I've been leading the monthly poetry group for nearly three years, but most of them have stopped writing and stopped attending (also without explanation).
I've also reached out to some greeting card companies to create new cards/bookmarks with my stuff; none of them bothered to respond to my inquiries. In addition, I've reached out to some Christian music companies - only to receive the same lack of response or acknowledgment.
If that wasn't enough fun, my publishing company failed (twice last year) to publish my second book of poetry; that means I'm still unable to sell a non-existent product, even though I signed a contract and paid for their services. Originally, it was scheduled at Feb 1st; then it was Fall 2012; had not heard back from them since the Sep/Oct timeframe.
