What is an Anthology?

An anthology is a collection of poems, songs or stories grouped together either by the writer or an editor. The most common anthology is complied by an editor and set in book form. Young Writers produce anthologies.

Examples of Young Writers Anthologies:

  • Mini Saga books
  • My First Riddle books
  • The Poetry Games Books

Anthologies are used in poetry to create small collections of work, sometimes by one author, sometimes by lots of different authors to offer the reader a variety within one book.
