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.

“Poetry, both reveals and shares our humanity”  (Trevor Maynard, editor The Poetic Bond Series)

Submission window now open, closing date 30 June, 2017

The Poetic Bond V

                      

Why is a poem selected for THE POETIC BOND?

The submission process is unique in that choices for inclusion are made on the basis of emergent themes and congruency in the pool of work submitted; it is therefore also a snapshot of the poetry of NOW, seeking to capture the zeitgeist of the moment. 

THE POETIC BOND V

"It has been a joy to read all of you wonderful poets and thanks, once again, to you Trevor, for creating this bond and for including me in it." Neetu Malik (PA, USA)

"I am forever grateful, Trevor, for your hard work. I know this project takes much professional/love time out of your personal time. Thank you!" Bonnie Roberts (AL, USA)

"I have been reading a lot of the work that has gone into the making of it & am very impressed with much of the execellently crafted writing" Robin Hislop (UK, artvilla.com)

From a biscuit crumb on your lover’s lips, to the death of a Princess, to the formation of galaxies far, far away, human is our condition, life is our journey, and come agony, joy, or even world-weariness, life is for living, keep on keepin’ on.

Love, Death, and The War On Terror

We, the people, still meet each other, fall in love, and generate enough good in the world to counter and hopefully, in the end, overhaul the evil. The terrorists may murder, the soldier may die, but in the end, humanity has love, and love will conquer all.

A new edition of

Love, Death and The War on Terror 

will be released   in March 2016, and will include five new poems.

This edition will include the "Obama" Trilogy.
