So poetry is very special to me. It’s actually what I chose to do my senior thesis on in college. That was an intense experience, though I wouldn’t trade it for the world. I am actually the poetry editor for Our Write Side, a lovely resource for both writers and readers (check them out at ourwriteside.com). As such, I had the joy of selecting poems for the upcoming poetry anthology, Primal Elements, coming this June (that’s just next month!).
I had a great time reading all of the submissions and putting together the awesome line up for PE. I even had the honor of having four of my own poems selected for the anthology. The theme for PE was the elements. Fire, water, air, earth, and spirit. You would think that the poems written about these elements would all come out similar, but you couldn’t be farther from the truth. Each poet took the subject matter a completely different way and some wonderful poetry was the result.
Primal Elements is now available for preorder for just $2.99! Grab your copy here. Prices may rise once it’s released, so now is a great time to buy it.
Since we are talking poetry, here’s a link to a write up I did for OWS talking about getting started with poetry here. What’s your favorite poem? Why? Share below and happy writing!
