Anthology Update! We're Close!

Blog Posted:11/26/2020 9:38:00 AM

We are very close to finally publishing our first anthology. Thanks for the great submissions. Unfortunately, some great poems were omitted because the poet didn't use their legal name. Oh, well. Anyway, we hope to release the book this weekend! 

Some have asked about the price. It looks like the cost will be $19 or less for this wonderful 500-page anthology. 

We'll let you know more soon.

Wow, quite a gargantuan anthology! I can't wait for the unveiling, Team Poetrysoup! Like Connie, I'll purchase a copy even if none of my 3 poems make the cut. Thanks for the latest scoop!

I look forward to having my own copy. It will be wonderful to know so many Authors in the book. I will buy a copy rather my poem makes it in or not. Thank you Team Poetry Soup for all the hard work that goes in to an endeavor like this. Christmas Blessings.

Team Poetry Soup, that is great news. $19.00 is a fair price, of course being from Canada my price would be a bit higher but still good for a 500 page book of poetry. Whether I made it in the book (hope I did, I submitted 3 poems!) I would still purchase it _Constance
