100 poets against the war

World poets against the war

100 Poets against the war, 100 Poets against the war redux and 100 Poets against the war 3.0 were designed to be printed off, copied double-sided and distributed as chapbooks. All the contributors donated their poems and we encouraged readers to download and share the books. There were readings from Seattle to Oxford.

'100 Poets against the war' was perhaps the speediest world poetry anthology ever - one week from start to finish (27 January). '100 poets against the war redux', its second edition, contained many new poems, so complemented rather than replaced the original. The third edition, '100 Poets against the war 3.0', which followed one week later, also contained magnificent new poems. (You'll need Adobe Acrobat - a free download - to read them.)

'100 poets' is the result of grassroots activism. All profits from the printed book go to Amnesty International, and the online versions are free.
