The People Behind the Voices

As previously announced,Tennessee Voices 2021-2022 , Poetry Society of Tennessee’s anthology, is now available on Amazon.  It features results and winning poems from the 2021-2022 Monthly Contests, Poetry Festival, and Student Competitions. Creating a collection like this takes a whole lot of work, and we have a whole lot of appreciation to hand out to everyone who made this edition possible.


THANK YOU to all of the sponsors and judges who made the contests possible. 

THANK YOU to contest coordinators

  • Ann Carolyn Cates (Monthly Contests)
  • Lori Goetz (Festival Contests)
  • Frances Cowden and Seth Grindstaff (Student Competitions: poems and eye poems).  

THANK YOU to the educators who helped students create and enter poetry into the student competitions.

THANK YOU to ALL of the poets who submitted their poems to the competitions. 

THANK YOU to our editorial board who constructed and edited the manuscript, then published it through Kindle Direct Publishing (special thanks to JoAn Howerton for her encouragement throughout the process):

  • Rose Klix
  • Janet Qually

THANK YOU to all who purchase Tennessee Voices 2021-2022. We hope you enjoy the edition as much as we enjoyed the many activities that brought it to life.
