Title contenders revisited

Well, my poll on titles for poetry collections has now closed, with a clear preference being shown for wacky or surreal titles, followed by one-word titles, followed by titles on the model of The (Blank).

Not exactly the biggest survey sample, to be fair, but it did confirm what I’ve been thinking – that choosing a title that, first and foremost, makes your book stand out from the crowd of poetry releases might be the best idea.

Thanks to all those who voted.
