It’s been an incredible year on Clear Poetry, and a few weeks ago I decided to mark the end of the blog’s first twelve months with something special. Call it an early Christmas present.
I’ve created an e-anthology – and it’s FREE! *
The book includes at least one poem by each contributor but it’s sequenced more like a mixtape, rather than in the order in which the work was originally published. Hopefully this will mean that everyone will find something new which they might have missed the first time around.
* Now, before you get too excited, although there is nothing to stop you merrily grabbing these files without paying a penny, I thought it would be nice to invite every reader, and indeed anyone who’s enjoyed the blog over the course of 2015, to donate a sum of their choosing to their favourite charity. Failing that, and especially if times are hard, a random act of kindness will suffice. Either way, give. Please.*
OK, so the files:
Firstly, here’s a version on issuu.com, which you can read on screen.
PDF version – downloadable from WordPress here
MOBI version (for Kindle) – downloadable here
AZW3 version (for Kindle DX, Fire etc) – downloadable here
EPUB version (for Kobo, Nook etc) – downloadable here
Or if you like, download a zip folder containing all formats from here
For each of the ebook formats (MOBI, AZW3 and EPUB) you should just be able to download the file to your PC or laptop and then transfer it to your Kindle, Fire, Nook, Kobo etc once the device is connected via USB. Generally you can simply drag the file from your ‘Downloads’ folder straight into the device (often the ‘Documents’ folder), although check online support documentation if you’re unsure.
I hope you enjoy reading it, and do please let me know what you think!
I’d like to thank all of the contributors for allowing me to include their work, and of course for helping to keep this project secret! Thanks also to the New York City Municipal Archives, who kindly agreed to my non-commercial use of the lovely cover image free of charge.
Thanks again to all of our readers for supporting Clear Poetry this year – and here’s to a happy and peaceful 2016.
