Super-random poetry posting question. I just posted a poem a few posts back by a writer friend, which reminded me that I was talking to someone at a con recently who always posts her poems as graphics. More meme-ish that way, I guess? I’m wondering whether I should do that too, on the somewhat rare occasions when I’m posting a poem. (I’m planning to post one later today, which is also why it’s on my mind.)
I don’t really know how one goes about composing the background for such a thing — just use Canva to make an attractive ombre color or some such? Add in a relevant photo image (that you own)? Is that more appealing (or more visible on FB) than just posting the text? What do y’all think?
I know for access, I’d want to post the text itself as well, so it feels a little goofy, posting both text and photo text, but maybe that’s fine. And I suppose that’d make it easier for Heather to cross-post it for me to Instagram…?
