“Twenty-nine poets… have pooled their considerable talent and creative energy to produce as delightful an anthology as I’ve had the pleasure to read in quite some time.”
--Dr. Mark Smith-Soto, Editor, International Poetry Review
“Within these pages, one’s soul will be led on a sensuous journey from the sweetest sublime through the dark and earthy bittersweet of love and disappointment…(They) leave the reader renewed, confirmed and again believing in the power of poetry as prayer.”
--Dr. Anjail Rashida Ahmad, Director, The Creative Writing Program, North Carolina A&T State University
“These poets have learned how to use the ‘crazy glue’ of words to bind up shattered lives, to comfort and challenge, and to lift the beauties of the world in celebration….A rewarding volume!”
--Valerie Nieman, author of Wake Wake Wake (Press 53, 2006)
“These well-selected… poems ask us to look at the commonplace elements of the world…and, by giving them what Wordsworth calls ‘a certain colouring of imagination,’ make them seem mysterious and new.”
--Janice Moore Fuller, Author, Séance and Sex Education, Writer-in-Residence, Catawba College
The anthology features works from poets from around the triad and includes poems about the Natural World, Love and Love Gone Wrong, Around the World and Home, Growing Up, Growing Old, Believing, Death and Loss, Art, Writing, and All that Jazz.
Listen with your heart to WGOT poetry;
indulge in the fruit of fantasy,
reality, love so jazzy, lost or free.
Renowned poets agree
on our quality.
The Writers' Group of the Triad is a not-for-profit organization of writers for writers. Their mission is to provide a supportive and creative atmosphere in which all levels of writers can write and revise with the help and advice of others. Their facilitators are professionals in every way and enjoy helping other writers with sense of story, organization, grammar, punctuation, spelling, and sentence structure problems. If they are successful as a group, then they will turn wannabee writers into magazine article writers and published authors. They are dedicated to helping their members improve their writing skills through peer review and the sharing of experiences at regular monthly meetings of subgroups.
