Question for creative writers: Is there any point to creating a profile in the Poets & Writers directory, especially if one isn’t in academia? Have you ever gotten a poetry gig as a result of it, or even noticed it as a referrer in your blog or website stats? I ask because I’ll soon have a full-length book that isn’t self-published, which will make the application straightforward, but I’m still not sure I can suppress my gag reflex long enough to do so.
