The Anthology of Poetry, founded more than 15 years ago, is a forum that recognizes writing excellence in students from kindergarten through 12. Through its three publications, it selects and publishes poems and short stories submitted by student writers and provides teachers with an objective forum for their students creations. The forum reviews every submission and authors are selected for their writing expertise and not salability. Publications are in soft and hard cover formats and copies are also donated to the libraries of participating schools. The Anthology of Poetry is based in Asheboro, N.C.
