Each of us poets wrote to the prompt we found each day from Robert Brewer and the variety of poems was endless! Each of us had a different take on each prompt and soon my April was filled with poetry every day. After April was over I wanted to keep writing poetry, because all this poetry writing had ignited my love for poetry all over again! So I began to contribute to the Wednesday challenges and soon I became very friendly with many of the poets there. Now our core group of poets has formed Poeming Friends on Facebook and from this group we splintered off to the Anthologists. The Anthologists has written two poetry books which were the result of each poet who participated giving an equal number of poems for each one. The first book is called Prompted: An International Collection of Poems. The second book is called Beyond the Dark Room. All of the proceeds from each book goes to a charity. The first book, Prompted: An International Collection of Poems has a Forward by Robert Brewer my guest author. All of the prompts we used were created by him for various poetry challenges.
Robert has been the heart of all of our poetic attainments and that April when I began to write poetry again gave me another way to express myself. Now several of my poems have been published in online magazines.
Now you know a little more about why I am so excited to have Robert Brewer on my blog. I was very fortunate to interview him. I hope you enjoy learning more about him.
Looking at the cover of your book, I am wondering what kinds of poems are inside. Here is one poem you will find here:
