I'm a Published Poet! (COVER REVEAL for "The Life of a Writer Anthology")

Updated: 4 days ago

Yes, you read that title right! I'm so grateful and excited to be a part of this amazing collection of poetry compiled by my friends and fellow authors, Erin Hylands and Eowyn Bolivett.


I've had poems published in the past, but this feels more... official, for lack of a better word. I've been writing poetry longer than I've been writing novels, and having five of my poems featured in this anthology is such a dream come true for me. I can't wait for you all to read and learn more about the book! 😌

And now... the moment you've all been waiting for...



THE COVER


grayish green minimalist poetry anthology cover























let it be

that the letters beneath

my fingertips

arrange themselves according

to the story you breathe


let it be

that endless of imaginings and

my dreams

choreographs a dance

to your symphony


let it be

that my strivings cease entirely

my King

sing the words

and I will pen the melody


let it be

beautiful and sweet to thee

my heart

shapes sentences

to ignite or set a child free

EEEEE, CONGRATULATIONS ON HAVING YOUR POEMS PUBLISHED, AVA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🥳 That is soooooo exciting!!!!! Your "let it be" poem is soo beautiful!! 💖 I can tell you are a talented poet!!!


I write poetry as well, though probably not as much as you. XD When I was younger I wrote humorous poems. But now I write poems that express my thoughts and feelings. For favorite poet, I've always loved Jack Prelutsky's work!!
