PoetrySoup is an internet poetry resource and community that encourages the writing of poetry through community involvement and support. Founded in February of 2005, this Free online poetry website allows professional and amateur poets, from around the world, to post their poetry online and receive reviews. This allows poets to increase exposure from their work while perfecting their craft. For those who simply like to read poetry, PoetrySoup also publishes poems in many categories and forms for wholesome reading pleasure.


PoetrySoup Has Published its First Anthology

Blog Posted:11/30/2020 5:17:00 AM

PoetrySoup has published its first poetry anthology. We had been hesitant to produce an anthology, but you Soupers encouraged us to do it. Thanks for the encouragement. Congrats to those who had poems selected. Poets selected were notified by email.

PoetrySoup has almost 40,000 members, but only about 1% were chosen for inclusion (The names are below).

We will start promoting the book soon to the world, so we hope it helps the readers see and appreciate your wonderful poetry. The book contains two tables of contents (TOC). One TOC by poem title and another by author name. The TOCs are at the back of the anthology. 

We also tried to price the book as reasonably as possible so it will be easy for Soupers to purchase copies for family and friends, or give them as gifts. You can purchase the book on Amazon.com if you want: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B08P1P6MB8 (USA), https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B08P1P6MB8 (UK), https://www.amazon.ca/dp/B08P1P6MB8 (Canada)...and more.

Hello Everybody ! Naturally I was a little disappointed I did not get in- i assume many of the 98-99% would silently be also therefore I am writing this with no shame but pride... just because 98-99% did not get in-doesn't mean they are not great poets- I know as I am a great poet hahaa :P but also-naturally... I am honestly sincerely thrilled that many friends whom have supported me here ( and throughout difficult periods of my life), whom are in fact great poets and more importantly great people- made it in the first anthology- you all truly deserve it and it made me so happy to see you all happy- CONGRATULATIONS WINNERS !!!

The poem I submitted was "The Blues" if anyone wants to read, Welcome. Was considering putting "DISTANT SHORES" in- which maybe would had got in but I'm proud I wrote both of them anyways, and all my poetry. Everybody should be proud-the winners and all who entered for not everybody can write poetry and to have such a talent- is a true blessing !

Thank you so much PS team! It was a wonderful surprise to learn that my poem was selected and added to the Soups very first anthology! I'm currently sitting on cloud nine. Congratulations to all those who were selected. I look forward to reading your poems. And many, many thanks to those who read my poems and added their kind feedback. I have already ordered three copies. One for myself and two for family members. A lovely literary gift to add under my tree this year! :-)

I can't begin to explain the feeling of excitement when a friend of mine on soup, soup mailed me to let me know I was one of the chosen 600 for the Anthology book. Poetry admin, I would like to thank you so much for the wonderful opportunity you have afforded me and all the poets chosen. I would like to congratulate each and every one of my fellow poets and wish you all a bright and poetic future and above all I thank God that he has bestowed on us all the gift of writing poetry. Love you all. Jennifer.

Anuradha, Glopal allows you get almost anything on Amazon.com and ship it to India, securely. You can buy from the USA on Amazon.com: dvds, books, the kindle, toys, headphones, clothing, jewelry, kitchenware and so on. And Glopal will handle the rest until it's delivered to your home in India. Visit our help page to know more about how Glopal works and shop best international retailers and brands. Just saw this on line, check out Glopal online and they should sort it out. Good luck. Tom

Hello! Congratulations on completing this mammoth project. I hope you didn't regret what you'd taken on! Just a note for poets in the UK that you can go to the amazon.co.uk website and search for "PS It's Poetry" and it comes up. I assume this is the case for other Amazon sites. I like the new cover by the way :-)
