Voices of the World - a poetry anthology

Updated on May 21, 2017

One of the things that I always wanted to do was put together a poetry anthology that featured poets from different parts of the world who wanted to be heard and dreamed of having their work in print. It was always on the back of my mind, yet I never got around to actually going through with it.

Recently, I decided it was time to actually do this. It was time to put together and publish my first poetry anthology. I wasn't sure if I'd be able to get enough poets interested to be able to publish a book but I succeeded and Voices of the World - a poetry anthology was born.

Since I did not want to have a specific theme for this anthology I left it up to the poets to decide what they wanted to write about and in what poetic style their work would be. This resulted in a diverse anthology of poetry with something for everyone to enjoy.

Voices of the World - a poetry anthology

Voices of the World - a poetry anthology is a wonderful collection of poetry featuring forty-six poets from around the world (me being one of them). These poets come from such countries as the United States, Canada, Ireland, France, Romania, India, and Russia, among others. They showcase their work to the world by sharing two of their poems written in their own unique voices and writing styles.

The poets that are featured in Voices of the World - a poetry anthology are very passionate in their craft. When they write they leave themselves on the page and it shows through in their work. I think their poetry leaves a lasting impression and leaves us with something to think about.

Some excerpts from Voices of the World - a poetry anthology

For those interested in getting a copy of the anthology Voices of the World - a poetry anthology is available in paperback on, amazon, barnes & noble online and as an e-book on, kindle, nook, ibooks and kobo.

Every poet deserves the chance to be heard, to be in the spotlight and my poetry anthology lets them do just that.

I am very proud of this anthology and will treasure it for a lifetime. I can't wait for people to get the book so they can enjoy all the treasures that lie inside. I got my own copy and have read it many times. I enjoy the book each time I read it and there is always something new that I discover with each read.

Now that my dream of publishing my first poetry anthology has been realized I decided to put together and publish a second poetry anthology. This time it will a specific theme - nature poetry. The title will be Whispers in the Wind. Again, I will have poets from different countries in the book. I am very excited about this anthology as I love nature poetry. I will include two of my nature poems in this book.

      The Anthology, "Voices of the World", is pure enjoyment no matter what kind of poetry captures your fancy. It is unlike any Anthology I have ever written for or enjoyed. So many poets had a great time coming together to make it possible. Don't miss out!!!
