I’m pretty sure there’s a thread about this somewhere, though it’s also probably pretty ancient by now.
I’ve accidentally started a habit for promoting the submission call for CB2016. I say accidentally, only because I was cleaning out my personal twitter account of people I follow when I came across a poet. I liked what was on their page, so on a whim I decided to let them know about the submission, and not only were they interested, but they promoted it in turn. Even with how awkward I felt afterward, I was also more than a little happy to see the extra advertisement, so repeated the process this week. I’m still a little anxious because it feels kind of, I dunno, annoying? Obnoxious? Other unpleasant words? Thus far the reaction has been very positive, but I’m curious, how much would be too much? Is once a week okay? Should I drop it down to less? Should I be doing this at all? I know it’s a little different from, say, promoting my own book, but I still feel rather awkward doing it.
