“Poetry has always been a niche, but vital section for Exclusive Books – appealing to audiences in a totally different way to traditional narratives. Poetry also allows the readers to dip in and out of a book and for reflecting powerful thoughts in bite size chunks.” – Batya Bricker, General Manager, Exclusive Books
