UPDATE|List of selected Poets & Poems for the Anthology 2nd Edition

Dear Poets and Lovers of Art,

“To replace the old paradigm of war with a new paradigm of waging peace, we must be pioneers who can push the boundaries of human understanding. We must be doctors who can cure the virus of violence. We must be soldiers of peace who can do more than preach to the choir. And we must be artists who will make the world our masterpiece.” – Paul Chappell
Gratitude to all who have seen peace as their responsibility and have contributed both intellectually and physically to making this dreamed peace anthology a reality.

The poems received were blindly assessed and edited (Without the interest of anyone) by our two profound editors – Mutiu Olawuyi (Editor-in-Chief) and Brigitte Poirson (Guest Editor). Out of over 300poems, selections were made but the editors from their wealth of knowledge made it all possible that one poem at least is selected for each poet.

The contributors/Selected poets range from Uloma Naomi James ( a 13 years old from Nigeria) to Adesewa Oyinkansola (a 16 years old also from Nigeria),  Gopakumar Radhakrishnan (India), Roula Pollard ( a Greek poet), Ariadne Sawyer (Canada), Benjami Nii Oku (Ghana), Maria Miraglia (Italy), Ceri Naz ( Philippines ) and many more.

The anthology will be published by http://www.xpresspublications.com in India and will be available on Amazon India and International on 14th May, 2016.
