“Five panelists discuss creating an anthology: balancing title and cover art with selections from over sixty poets and writers from around the world. As authors, editors, and visual artists, the panelists too come from distinct regions and cultural backgrounds. And while publishers have the final say, the aim is for all to be satisfied with the result. Countering the often divisive and competitive tone of our times, panelists present a model for collaboration and the creative spirit in action.”
