Anthology

Each of the McGregor Poetry Festivals is celebrated by its own, dedicated Anthology. These are collections of some of the poems presented on the various programmes or at the open-mic sessions, representing a broad range of proficiency. They bear remarkable testament to the fervour and encouragement of the poets who so wholeheartedly support our endeavour.
Each Anthology becomes a cornerstone of its own Festival and undoubtedly encourages all of us to take heart, to persevere and to flourish in our endeavour to celebrate the art of poetry. They ensure that the words of our featured poets are carried beyond the confines of McGregor, and out to libraries, schools and individuals. They grant longevity to our vision of deepening awareness, touching hearts and changing lives through poetry.
