For the First Time Ever, PoetrySoup Will Publish a Poetry Anthology!!!

Blog Posted:9/27/2019 5:20:00 AM

PoetrySoup has been in existence for well over a decade. Over the years, we've received many requests to produce a poetry anthology. Well, after all of this time, we have finally decided to publish a poetry anthology of the best poems ever on PoetrySoup. 

We will provide more information soon about this poetry book.

In the meantime, determine which of your poems are the best or write new ones. We will soon provide a way for you to submit your best poems for review. We may be able to use them in the book. However, there are no guarantees since the selected poems will be determined by PoetrySoup...with the approval of the poet, of course.

Clearly tons of interest (either way) but silence from the PS Team. Any input, Teamies??? Also check out KT's "inquiring minds want to know" Blog entry. He's charged your Poets with an alternative to "just do nothing" as PS contributors.

I apologize to everyone here for getting pissy. I just feel, as writers, we owe a little ink to the revolution. If you don't feel that way, maybe it's because you're white. And by "white", I mean "white skinned"; and by "white-skinned", I mean your bank account; i.e.; your "green". This is Crayola America knocking. We will not desist ~ won't take no for an answer. Capitalism will be sublimated to the Republican ideal.

Dr. Warlove, I too have been "edited" for poesy language deemed unaccepatble by the Team PS. Their site, their rules. However, once I inquired they did inform me of my sin. Editing by asterisk. I hope your experience on PS can be redeemed and future Blog and poetry resonate among the Roster Peers. Enjoy freedom and don't retreat!! Mea culpa.

( see 'dear respondent' ) [ 2/ 3 ] Thank you for clarifying "fake free speech". I'm unaware of what difficulties other may have with these blogs, but my initial criticism was not about free speech, per se, but PoetrySoup's editorial policy; e.g.; "Censorship". I believe there are, and should be, rational limits to speech, and by virtue of that logic, it may apply also to the 'written word', but it is incumbent upon responsible publishers, especially given this particular social value, to communicate that in the clearest terms possible.

Tommy, I like this Warlov and found ‘only upon his knees’ especially hilarious. Robert – understand TPS’s position. Considering social factors such as ‘community’ and business factors such as ad revenue, they decided it best to make the site family friendly. There could also be an ethical driver, for instance, if the owner (s) are of certain religious beliefs, etc. I think that if you were to apologize and ask nicely, Tommy would certainly soupmail you a list of ‘trash-loving’ sites.

1. To separate language is to separate communities, making "Republican" governance a sham. --- 2. The notion of "faux [fake] free-speech" eclipses my imagination. If the respondent would clarify it, I might continue to engage. --- 3. "Son of Spock" should reconsider who it is he may approach only upon his knees; the one who defines "Trash". --- It's not the case, I suspect, that some have forgotten their history, but instead, that the failed American pedagogy is herein displayed.

Unless this proposed anthology has more pages than War And Peace, and the qualifying criteria is dumbed down, I fear there will be so many noses put out of joint, this place will seem like the annual convention of boxers who never once went the distance. But hey! I'll be up for a read and a few shillings. And all the hissy fits of those so cruelly omitted should be highly entertaining.

Very hard to detect and if it wasn’t for intuition, I may not have realized what it was. This is another sign that the age of man is coming to an end.

I wonder just what kind of anthology it will be? As has been pointed out, with so many writers posting here, what criteria will be used to make said selections? To be fastidiously honest: just as there is some VERY good poetry here, there's also (perhaps inevitably) some very poor stuff as well -- and the latter (again inevitably) must surely outnumber the former. If no standards are applied, the whole thing becomes an overblown vanity publication. One wonders, is P.S. here to promote good poetic writing or merely to give anyone who fancies himself a poet a venue? "Discrimination" has been recast as a pejorative word, but it is sine qua non in poetical criticism.

Clearly, we will not be able to include everyone’s poems. We already have poems that we would like to include and will be asking for the poets approval when the time comes. However, we have not read all poems on the website so that is why we need your help in selecting your best poems. Then, we will review them to see if they are worthy of inclusion. We want this to be a quality work of art that even educational institutions can reference.

There are allegedly 30k poets signed up on this site. If even just 2% submitted for consideration that's 600 poems. Quite obviously then it's going to be impossible to include everyone. See my comment below

Is it a form of vanity publishing - members whose poems are included to buy a copy at $... ?

Otherwise, this refers back to my original question here: $...

Poems about the weather are eligible!

This sounds great. There are a lot of members. How will you get everyone in it ? You already know our "best" (or most popular poems). I think it would be neat if you just messaged us "Can we use this or that poem?" ( I am assuming all who want in will be accepted. This is how I have seen in done in other poetry clubs. I have no clue how to pick ; that is why I think it would be nice if you let all interested click yes somewhere and then you decide what you like of their poetry!)

I fully agree with the comments made by my friends, Susan Ashley, Robert L. Hinshaw and Suzette Richards- as this is a great idea. If it is done well, fairly and without bias in the choosing, based upon the high quality of the verses only. Looking forward to more specific details to be forthcoming.

It sounds like a great idea to publish a poetry anthology of the people's work of their poems.

Thanks, but, no thanks. I can publish and copyright my own poems, and write my own book. I already have something going on with my own poems/work. I haven't been writing all these years for someone else to take the credit. I don't think so. Have a great day.

Tamica, Tommy has been told to go find himself many times on here but never so poetically.

I would like to contribute to this as well..not necessarily for me.. although I have one or two poems I am proud of... but i would like to just spread the word and encourage all other soupers as well as new one's just like me.. Why? Well i have been doing this less than a year and I think I have written over 100 writes now..but they are not all posted online. So I would like to just encourage others to do what you do and believe in what you do... All the best to you all Damo x
