Our First Poetry Anthology!

Blog Posted:9/11/2020 8:02:00 AM

Well, you requested it, and it's finally here. PoetrySoup is publishing its first poetry anthology. We are currently accepting submissions for this publication. See our Submission Guidelines.


We have received many, many requests over the years to produce an anthology. We've been reluctant to do so; however, we've come up with a way to simplify the process and create a poetry anthology.


We hope this will be the first of many.

Is it possible to replace one of our three submissions with another poem? (I can find no obvious way of doing so). Thank you!

Hi Gregory - Click "My Poems" from the list on the left of this page. (It's under Member Area) Then click on the anthology picture next to the poem you wish to delete from the anthology. Follow the instructions from there - it's just a question of clicking yes you do want to remove that poem from the anthology. Cheers - Gary

Hi susan. If you go to your poems and press edit button next to your poem title u will see submit to anthology.then follow instructions. The taping instruction voice is confusing and no need to do it. I submitted without having to record my voice. Good luck!

Soup admin, regarding my comment below you will see that I asked a reasonable question, yet I am mocked by a person who has used a comment I made on Jennifer's POTD.. I have him blocked yet he is still allowed to comment . PLEASE will you close the loophole that allows this to happen. I am certain other people he does this to would also appreciate it.

Mosquitoes find a way to buzz around, trying to suck blood. One good slap....

The comments have now been removed Jenna, hopefully admin will close the loophole which enables them to comment to you when you are away from your poetry page, surely you would think they would get the message if you have them blocked you want no communication with them. i will not engage in responding to them:-(

TPS Administration: I would appreciate it if you'd give a warning to those who post negative and rude comments.

Edward go to your poems and out beside it where it says edit, click that and you will see in big green letters the submit poem form

Are you still going to be contacting poets directly regarding poems that you wish to include as per your blog of 10/22/19 ?

Since we must sign the waiver(which is not a problem for me) I was wondering if the contributing members could perhaps get a copy at a discounted price? just askin Also, the best way to sell is advertising, why don't you figure out how to give us something to post on our FB pages to advertise for you. Like the poetrysoup adverisement you already furnish to members., afterall they are our poems so naturally we want folks to read them. poetry books can be a hard sell!
