Making a Poetic Bond - the ethos behind putting together the anthology
The process of selecting poems for publishing The Poetic Bond series is unlike any other in that there is no set plan as to what will be published. It depends on the themes which emerge from the pool of work submitted, or to put it another way, the poetic energy which comes together at this certain time and place.  Where themes emerge, patterns of energy harmonize, form bonds, connections, and these in turn lead to interconnected chapters, and the creation of a holistic volume, deeply connected with humanity, nature, and the universe.

So far 130 poets from 17 Countries have contributed 248 poems

 

“Poetry, both reveals and shares our humanity”

 

 (Trevor Maynard, editor The Poetic Bond Series)
