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 type is compiled by an editor and set in book form. Young Writers produce a lot of anthologies showcasing the talent of children and young adults across the world.
Examples of Young Writers Anthologies:
- Mini sagas - these anthologies include 100-word stories written by 7-18 year-olds.
- My First Riddle - a collection of anthologies showcasing riddles written by children in reception.
- The Power of Poetry - 11-18 year-olds' poems are published in an anthology alongside their peers.
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.
