Introducing the First Annual
CFP Members Anthology!
The CFP is dedicated to the advancement of poetry and poets, so we have decided to make
our first anthology called "The Future Looks Bright". With the words from enough poets,
and a resurgence in the prominence of poetry in society, it certainly will be.
So send us your poems, about anything that you think 'looks bright' in your future, or
the future of mankind, society, anything you feel compelled to share. With the power
of words we will help to change the world through positive energy.
No submission fee.
Youth aged 15 years of age and under can become CFP members for FREE.
You asked to be published, now all you have to do is earn it!
Find out more, tell your friends, and good luck to everyone!
