The Bookshelf


The Bookshelf is an extension of the Poets United Community. Since Poets United’s inception we have grown into a large and diverse community with poets and writers from all over the world with various writing styles. Many of our members have been published or have self published their writings through Lulu or some other form of small press. We have decided that in a further effort to support our members and their crafts we would set up a place where members of Poets United who have published poetry or prose can get a little more exposure.

Any active members of Poets United (60 Days or more) can have their books listed at “The Bookshelf” as long as they are poetry or prose related. They do not have to be strictly Poetry or Prose, since we know some of our member’s dabble in many of the arts, but there has to be some apsect of poetry or prose found in the listed material. This listing is not intended as a place to bombard our members with pleas for books to be purchased or read. This is merely a small database or compilation of works that anyone can browse and possibly consider picking up a copy or two from their fellow writers and friends.

Our posts will be simple and short, listing all relevant information in regards to the poet and the published material. The information found here will be submitted by our members for our members. Should you wish to submit some of your own published work please be sure to see our “Add Your Book Today” section.

As the poetry community continues to grow Poets United is glad to help further the progress by giving its members any and every opportunity to shine. We hope that this addition becomes one of those opportunities.

(We ask that you are patient with us in this new endeavor as we are certain there will be a few tweaks here and there in the beginning.)
