Book Image Did Not Load!In February of 2013 poet Dane Swan came up with what he thought was a novel idea for a poetry anthology: Invite poets strictly through his personal social media network of friends, and colleagues. Expecting maybe 4 or 5 responses he was floored to receive over 20. Expecting to compile and edit 30 pages of poetry he was delighted to put together a collection with 3 times that amount of content.
The theme for the anthology? Relationships -- we all have them. Relatives, lovers, friends...
The content? Impressive. From dark, gothic work to island tinged melodies; aboriginal infused poetics to anglo rural living. It's all here. There's a poem here for you.
