The Creative Exiles an anthology of poems: Let the Words Speak

The Creative Exiles Writing Group is comprised  of more than 50 writers from across the world.  Each contributor adds a piece of themselves to the organization and the “family.”  TCE originated as a poetry-focused website, but quickly grew into a place where writers of all genres could publish their works.  All of the content on the site is user-generated and user-critiqued.

Let the Words Speak was a groundbreaking book for many of the writers on the site as it gave them a chance to see their works in print.  Everyone involved had a great opportunity to learn about publishing and each other, leading to a more cohesive group with an eye on growing the group and pushing the limitations of their writing.

This book of poetry was released last October, 2016, and is a compilation of works published on the site at that time.  You’ll find works by  Kurt James Reifschneider, R. J. Schwartz, John D Hansen, Shalini Kagal, Phyllis Doyle Burns, Tony DeLorger, Melissa Hougard, Jackie Lynnley, Jamie HamannAbhimanyu Gaur, Ed Fisher, Nathan Bernado, Amy Johnsen, Lori Colbo, Rasma Raisters, Tarun Chhauda, and William Kovacic.

Copies can be ordered on-line at Amazon.

    Thank you for sharing this, Ralph!

    This is a wonderfully creative, charismatic, and artistic site in which I am honored to be a member.

    Though I have only been on TCE a couple of months, (I think), I have been greatly enriched by the authors in this group. Everyone here is so incredibly amazing!

    I wish to give special appreciation to John Hansen, and Ralph, for their upkeep of this site.

    And, I want to convey my deepest respect, admiration, and gratitude to the lovely Phyllis Doyle Burns for her kindness, her generosity of time, her graciousness in being so patient with me, and her extremely sharp writing and editing skills.

    When I think of The Creative Exiles, it is Phyllis who always comes to the center of my thoughts, first and foremost.

    But, this does not lessen the fact that I do appreciate every one here!

    Hugs to TCE!

    Tamara

      You most certainly will, Paul. The way we did it for the first one was to have authors choose which poems of their own to include in the book. And I will make sure you do that, dear poet. 🙂
