Sometimes, words are all you need. The Southeast knows this better than most. Home to a long and storied history, these states also point the way to our future: exciting, diverse, and full of possibilities. Down-home friendliness lives side by side with optimism for a brighter future. From the simply plain to the hauntingly mystical, the Southeast has it all. It’s no wonder poetry has found a home here.
And in America's Emerging Poets 2018: Southeast Region, 80+ up-and-coming poets—representing the states of Alabama, Arkansas, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee, and West Virginia—have their own chance to shine. Covering a wide array of topics ranging from love and heartbreak, family and friendship, the inherent beauty of nature, and so much more, these young talents will amaze you. Containing one poem per poet, this anthology is a compelling introduction to the great wordsmiths of tomorrow.
