Publishing our Choreopoem - Will It Be A Song & Dance ?

I have recently had very postive dialogue on line with a high profile poet a black woman, who has also created a choroepoem and it is about to be published. With further plans to  stage this work in the future. This is all the other way round, as to my own project, as we staged the work and are now seeking to have it published. The advantage we have is we know exactly the impact it has on audiences. Based on how we have staged the work . By way of preparing the script for a publisher and an interested dramaturge (at a London theatre )   I am reviewing the show text , I feel as though I need to add more specific stage directions for the character. In relation to the previous previous script I had actually  used that was more practical  for my performance and for the creative technical team.  

I and this other poet have agreed to keep in  contact, to share our individual journeys through  this process of bringing choreopoems,  more into more a broader focus in the arts -  in particular publishing and literature . The publisher's  of this poet colleague poet  is  a well known successful independent , one of those at the very foreront of cutting edge writing in the UK .
