Is there a cause for concern for the future of poetry? Are publishers indeed reluctant to publish poetry? And readers reluctant to buy it? Join the panel as they attempt to understand if poetry has indeed become the unprofitable segment within the publishing industry today, and if poetry should be accessible, or literary, or both. The panel will also discuss the “state of poetry” in the Indian languages, if low sales and low readership are a product of each other, and the need, if there is one, to give poetry a boost.
