Central Coast Poets Inc. anthology launch

The Central Coast Poets Inc. is proud to present their latest anthology. The anthology was launched on December 8 by Meredith Gilmore of Coast FM. David Musgrove presented awards to the winners of the Henry Kendall Poetry Competition. This email contains a link to where the book is available for purchase at $24.99. Central Coast Poets Inc. gratefully acknowledges the generous assistance and support of its editorial committee: Jeannie Lawson Kelly Blaney-Murphy Robert M. Steley David Harrison John Wright Narelle Grace Louise Berry The theme is ‘seeking the sun’, wherever it hides. Poetry, in essence, is about imagery through words and this title evokes the longing of humanity for ‘better’. In poetry, our subconscious gives voice to the words our lips cannot form. It is both deep and indefinable. Yearning and unreachable. Linda Brooks. (Linda also created the anthology in digital format for printing through Linda Ruth Brooks Publishing Services. "Seeking the Sun is an anthology of contemporary commentaries, observations, memories and commemorations. From controversial to mundane, from dark to uplifting, from cynical to hopeful, the poems are serious, humorous, simple and sophisticated. Congratulations to Central Coast Poets Inc. for giving local poets and those from further afield the opportunity to have their voices heard in the biennial Henry Kendall Poetry Award, and for publishing this accomplished anthology in 2012."
