The Anthology of Poetry, Inc. is dedicated to the beauty, self-expression, and fun of poetry. After thirteen years of editing children?s poetry, we are convinced that children live and think in poetic images. They are delighted by the musical rhythmic sounds of poetry and can effortlessly conjure up its strange and wonderfully quick images. They are natural poets.
The four publications of Anthology of Poetry, Inc. are a forum for young poets to see their work and the work of other young poets published in an actual book. We believe that writing is a developed skill and any skill in its infancy should be sheltered and nurtured. By helping teachers expose students to the pleasures of a literary life, we are helping future authors take their first steps. The encouragement and confidence gained by seeing their work published will help fuel the enthusiasm needed to develop the writing skills so necessary in adult life.
