How much does a Professional Poet make per Year? Average Professional Poet Salary

Poetry writing can be a challenging career but is rewarding in its own right. It can be difficult for even the most talented of poets to make a living these days. Poetry is not a big seller in the publishing world, so it is difficult for poets to make a living on poetry alone. Oftentimes, poets will have to write in other forms to get by. Some poets are able to sell a few poems a month, but these sales will not amount to a full income. The more talented poets can expect to earn only a few thousand dollars a year for their poetry.
