Content for this, the fourth in our series of Poets Collective Anthologies, was drawn primarily from contests conducted at allpoetry.com. Since 2019, anthology submissions and most of the poems on the Poets Collective website come from Write, Share, Discuss, a small group of poets on AllPoetry who are engaged with one another in genuine camaraderie and the thoughtful exchange of in-depth critique. Participants pay no fee for inclusion. All PoCo Publications projects are profanity-free.
