"It was Unagented and Unsolicited Material that could have made us a Fortune"
This is about a poem that will strike a chord with all kinds of writers, poets, inventors, publishers, producers and businesspeople all over the world.
Do you think that person or that company even took a look at your letter, or did the admin throw it straight into the trash?
Along these lines, Robert Barrows, the President of an advertising agency called R.M. Barrows Advertising and Public Relations in San Mateo, California, has written a poem about trying to submit your unagented and unsolicited material to various kinds of companies.
HERE IS THE POEM :
"THE PUBLISHER'S AND PRODUCER'S LAMENT...
It was Unagented and Unsolicited Material that could have made us a Fortune"
Copyright 2022, Robert M. Barrows
It was unagented and unsolicited material,
and it's too bad we didn't take a look at it,
because one of our competitors did
and they made a fortune with this stuff.
There was a novel,
a book about a brand new kind of super hero,
and a couple of spy novellas
that could have all gone
straight to books, movies and TV
plus some video games, toys
and merchandise, too.
Plus, there were also a lot of great poems
and some great potential song lyrics
and a lot of proposals
for some new and unique projects and promotions
that could have also made us a fortune.
Who's the person that didn't take a look at this stuff
and why does our company still have
Maybe we should change some of the
ways we do business?
Get me that guy on the phone and let's talk to him.
Maybe he's got some other great stuff
that he hasn't submitted yet.
I wonder how much we could have made
if we took a look at his stuff?
And I don't want to miss out on a lot
of other great opportunities...
So...if it looks interesting,
and if it looks like it could make us a lot of money…
let me take a look at it.
You got his number, let's give him a call.
