Judged by J. M. Storm

J. M. Storm ǀ @jmstormquotes  and Her Heart Poetry are pleased to confirm the final selections for the forthcoming anthology, THE ANNUAL ǀ 2017. The standard of work was very high and the final selections range across a wide variety of topics. Some have taken on a traditional form, while others move around the page, mix long lines with short and insist that readers pay attention to their rhymes and silences. All embrace the contemporary notion of brevity and clarity, and all present a modern voice. A voice for the now. We are sure that this anthology, which will be available in October 2017, will be a welcome addition to any poetry lover’s home.

The winning entry, Sentimentalism by Zoe Andrews, can be viewed in full here.
