Today is #WorldPoetryDay - the perfect opportunity to show off some of our gorgeous collection of poetry books.
Here at Olympia Publishers, we pride ourselves on showing no prejudice. Many publishing houses or agents do not accept poetry genre books by default. We do agree that there is some truth to the market of poetry. Traditionally poetry can be hard to market or sell in this current climate. However, we simply cannot ignore that some of our biggest influences were poets and some of our favourite works of all time were by the likes of Oscar Wile, William Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe and William Wordsworth - all of which wrote poetry. Therefore, it would make little sense for us to reject a genre that we’ve loved.
Today we’re going to show you some of our poetry books, and hopefully, like us, you’ll be eager to read them!
A Life in Poetry covers a wide range of emotions and passions, described to us with beautiful elegance. Spanning a rich and varied life, Jane Willis uses poetry to convey her feelings, thoughts and wishes to the world.
Love is the Beauty of the Soul is a collection of poems by broadcaster Stephen Dixon. Written over a decade they reflect joy and pain, nature and family.
It would be nice to be able to paint pictures of our lives in words, and put them into rhyming verse the way Faye Lowley does in this charming collection of poetry.
Let Audrey Maloney-Vangen whisk your imagination away to beautiful beaches, violent storms, snowy lands, and Rocky Mountains in this collection of personal and vibrant poetry.
This eloquent collection of poems will take you through a journey of emotion – a journey that most of us will be able to relate to.
This is a book of poems I have written especially for a very special girl - "The Princess".
I knew the moment that I saw her that I had fallen for her. The signs were all pointing to falling for her - the racing heart, the heart skipping a beat, the butterfly feeling in my stomach, the legs feeling like jelly, struggling to get my words out, the blushing etc., etc.
