The Fearless Poetry Series
was launched in 2009 to showcase distinctive and compelling new voices in contemporary poetry. Poems are submitted by poets world-wide who are writing in English. Our staff reads and evaluates these submissions without knowing the name, race, gender, religion, political affiliation, credentials, or previous publishing history of any poet.

The result of this process is a collection of poetry from emerging poets of unusual power and distinction. Our contributors range from contemporary, recognized, award-winning poets to unknowns. Each anthology focuses on a theme: Volume One is titled THE LIGHT IN ORDINARY THINGS; Volume Two, a triple award winner, is titled TOUCHING: Poems of Love, Longing, and Desire. These titles are available at generous multiple-copy discounts and in all e-book formats.

The submission period for Volume 3, TURNING THE PAGE: Poems of Trauma, Healing, and Transcendence, is now closed.
Watch this page for the announcement of its publication
in spring 2014.

We are still considering submissions of original artwork for the cover and interior pages of this volume.
