Conceived by Series Editor William Wright in 2003, The Southern Poetry Anthology is a projected twelve-to-sixteen volume project celebrating established and emerging poets of the American South, published by Texas Review Press. Inspired by single-volume anthologies such as Leon Stokesbury’s The Made Thing, Gil Allen’s A Ninety-Six Sampler, and Guy Owen and Mary C. Williams’ Contemporary Southern Poetry: an Anthology, The Southern Poetry Anthology aspires to provide readers with a documentary-like survey of the most productive poetry being written in the American South at this time moment.
Specifically, the editors’ goals are twofold: first, to re-establish poetry of the South as a big presence in American literature, and second, to include a greater range of poets from the South to introduce a new poetic geography, a fresh corpus of what we keep in mind to be “Southern Poetry.”
