About

First Mirrored Voices Anthology
First Mirrored Voices Anthology

      Who said poetry is dead? Some believe poetry is a lost art. Well, I want to make the world find it once again. I want to assemble a nice array of poets with different styles and thought processes to fill the pages of a very unique collection.  I want to bring back poetry and support the profession that produces one of the best forms of literature and human expression in existence today. I want to gather new emerging poets and more established writers from around the globe and combine them together in harmony in Mirrored Voices : Best Emerging Poets. Many of these creative talented authors would not have the opportunity to be published or have their voices heard otherwise.

     I want to start a poetry revival and fund this project with your help. It would be a shame to lose these works that would never be introduced without pledges. I want to give aspiring minds a great chance to flourish and be heard by the multitude. Let's lend a helping hand to these unheard voices without the resources, knowledge or capacity to achieve well needed exposure to have their artistic creations published alongside already well established or up and coming authors from across the world.

     I’m Paul Morabito, creator of various published novels and works of Poetry such as Poetic Delusions and Mirrored Voices : Emerging Poets Anthology. Over the years I have grown firstly as a student, then as an author and publisher. The publishing world can be very frustrating at times. One must wear many hats. Various problems can unexpectedly arrive that need dealing with. The first of which is time. Time may be one of the most precious assets we possess. The daily grind makes it very hard for the average person to put everything aside and just start writing. Who knows how many precious pieces of literature mankind have lost due to just this barrier alone. Other financial responsibilities seem to always take precedence and get in the way of creativity. I want to change that and give exceptionally talented poets a shot at their dreams. Please help me make these dreams come true!

     The funds will be going towards my time, printing, recruiting emerging and established authors if possible, editing, interior layout design, cover design, formatting, distribution, material cost, labor and marketing as seen fit. The total amount should cover all expenditures to make this project happen.  Thank you so much for your interest in helping me produce this latest endeavor.  Please enjoy this sample piece and be inspired before pledging.

                                                         BORN FOR GREATNESS

     Every now and then great people are born. These are the ones that touch the lives and hearts of many. They are put here for a greater purpose. To warm the world with love and sweetness. To lend a helping hand when others turn away. To willingly provide comfort and endearment to mourners in need. To see and show others the vision of a peaceful world where children of all races can love one another freely. To discover the cure for individual suffering of the mind, heart, body, and soul. To feel compassion and sorrow for those who show none. To openly love without question without expecting anything in return. These are the rare few that make humankind great. That make life worth living. The true believers of hope for the future that pave the way for others to follow. The leaders of example. The followers of wisdom and truth. Be the difference in the world. Show them your greatness.

Risks and challenges

Risks may include issues with interior design, cover design, formatting files for print and digital versions, securing poets, rights issues, file issues and publishing barriers. For some chance that the print version does not become available, efforts will be concentrated on digital version.
