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 Hamann, Abhimanyu Gaur, Ed Fisher, Nathan Bernado, Amy Johnsen, Lori Colbo, Rasma Raisters, Tarun Chhauda, and William Kovacic.
