In 2012, a group of young poets, writers, and musicians were inspired by the plight of the homeless, a subject that resonated with the millions of Americans struggling to get by and a subject many felt had been neglected by mainstream media.
The group, The Poetry Project, launched a poetry anthology that would include poems by a wide range of authors, but the group also included poets who had a large impact on their chosen fields, such as Charles Dickens, Jane Austen, and the late Edward Gorey.
In 2016, the Poetry Magazine named the anthology “The Most Influential Poets of the Future.”
That year, The Economist named the collection the best in the field.
In 2017, the Washington Post dubbed the anthology the most influential poetry of the year.
The Poets Project’s 2017 anthology, “The Poetry of the Poets,” was the first anthology of its kind to be compiled and presented by an independent literary magazine.
It’s an experience that’s never happened before in the poetry community.
“The fact that we were able to take a group that were so unique, the fact that they were so independent, to create a collection that they felt would be meaningful and interesting, that was amazing,” said Jessica O’Brien, the editor-in-chief of The Poet.
“It’s a new and unique dynamic for our community to see what our poets and writers have been working on, what our community is all about.”
The Poeters Project collected over 1,200 poems and collected more than 1,000 pieces of music from all over the world.
“We wanted to create something that people could really understand what they were reading and why,” said O’Brian.
“When you go to a bookstore and you get a book, it’s a different experience, it feels different, but it’s the same thing.
It doesn’t feel like reading poetry, it doesn’t have the same depth.
So we wanted to find something that was accessible to everyone, to everyone’s taste, and something that would be entertaining and be accessible to all kinds of people.”
The collection also included stories from many of the artists featured in the Poet’s Project, including Charles Dickens (who wrote “The Waste Land” and “To Kill a Mockingbird”), William Faulkner (whose “The Quiet American” and the poem “The House at the Bottom of the Sea” became a hit with the audience of the Harlem Renaissance Festival), and John Grisham (whose novel “The Mockingbirds” is currently the most-banned book in the world).
Each piece was curated by a member of the project, and it was curated to have a wide audience.
In the case of the collection, the artists were also encouraged to bring their own perspectives, which allowed for an eclectic mix of different voices.
“I think that that was the goal from the beginning,” said Sarah McComb, a member who curated the Poeter’s Project.
“Everyone was asked to have their own perspective, and there were so many voices coming together to create this book.
I think the Poeters are really a group effort.
They’re all working together, they’re all listening to each other, they are all collaborating on this work.
It really is a reflection of our community and how we work together.”
“When we started the Poeteers Project, we wanted the anthology to be accessible,” said Emma Stokes, who curated “The Lady with the Golden Head.”
“We all have our own particular style of poetry, and we’re not just looking at the latest book, we’re looking at what works for us.
We’re looking for the new, the best, and most original.
We were really interested in trying to create an anthology that was a reflection and reflection of the poetry that was coming out at the time, that we all really enjoyed.
That was what led us to bring all these different voices together.”
Each piece included original lyrics by the Poettas, who all have different styles of poetry.
For example, the poem that was featured in “The Girl with the Pearl Earring,” is a combination of a number of different styles, including modern poetry, folk, and contemporary.
“In many ways, ‘The Lady With the Pearl Eye’ is a kind of a love song to me,” said Mary Mankiewicz, who was the Popper of “The Rose.”
“I just think it’s such an amazing poem.
It captures so many different things, and in a way, it captures that particular type of feeling, the emotional longing that a girl has to be accepted, that feeling of being rejected by society, that kind of longing that she has to have something to make up for.”
“The title of the poem,” added Mankiewiks, “is a little bit of a misnomer, but I mean it literally.
It is about the love of love.
