Two Anthologies


In the past few months I’ve been fortunate to have work included in two anthologies. The first, Indie Blu(e) Publishing’s As the World Burns: Writers and Artists Reflect on a World Gone Mad, is a 348-page “anthology of poetry, prose, essay, and art inspired by the unprecedented events of the year 2020.” Featuring 114 writers and artists from ten countries, As the World Burns chronicles the madness and horrors of the past year. The voices are diverse — raw and polished, young and old, experienced and new — and they reflect a populace whose needs have been unmet and ignored all too long. In time this volume will stand as one of the most powerful literary artifacts of this mad year.

Edited by Kindra M. Austin, Candice Louisa Daquin, Rachel Finch, and Christine E. Ray.

Available through Amazon in paperback and via Kindle.

Unlike As the World BurnsNo More Can Fit Into the Evening: An Anthology of Diverse Voices is not a collection of themed pieces. Rather, its purpose is to offer a substantial grouping of poems (5-10) by each contributor, allowing readers to obtain a more nuanced flavoring of the poets’ work. Thus the 350+ page anthology presents only 39 poets. The anthology includes well known writers like Terence Winch, Kimberly Blaeser, James Janko and John Looker, as well as lesser knowns like, well, me. This is a perfect winter’s evening read. Dip into it and perhaps you’ll find a new favorite poet. At the very least you’ll find hours of entertainment, and much food for thought.

Edited by Thomas Davis and Standing Feather

The book is being distributed by Ingram, and should be available (if not in stock, through special order) through bookstores in the U.S., Great Britain, Australia, Canada and New Zealand. It’s also available through Amazon.

  1. Wonderful! I hadn’t known about No More Can Fit Into the Evening; promptly adding to my shopping list….. There is always something to be found in the budget for new voices (and familiar ones!)

  2. Oh, interesting! I’ll have to check both of these books out. Thanks for the heads up! Oh, and BTW, whenever I click on the link to your blog from my email, it comes up “this is somewhat embarrassing..can’t find the link you were looking for.” It’s only happening for your blog, not for others I follow. Wondering if any of your other followers are having this difficulty.

  3. We were so honored to have you and Merril, both top notch poets in my humble estimate, in As The World Burns. I felt you really elevated the book with your selections – I have long admired both of you as writers and count you also as friends. Thank you so dearly for supporting this worthy project – we may not make any money from what we do in our spare time but we make a difference in the world and that’s good enough for me!
