How do you locate an audience for dark and depression poetry?

I write depression and dark poetry and I’m searching for an audience for my poetry book. Regular open mic doesn’t cut it and poetry readings. I’m told it is too sad. So searching for some new locations. Websites whatever. Any ideas?

    I write pretty depressing poetry as well, although i’m not sure if mines is more depressing or if your is. I don’t know exactly what your looking for but I can recommend some tips on how to find it. If you just want people to read your stuff. you should search google for forums you can join. “Dark poetry forums.” There are a lot of people that write and read “dark depressing poetry”. Here are a few sites that I found you should probably check to see if it right for you.
