InSpiritry Art of Peace - Tyler Poetry Anthologies

Art of Peace - Tyler is an East Texas celebration of the United Nations International Day of Peace, marked around the world each year on September 21. Cofounded and co-directed by Anne McCrady, Art of Peace - Tyler offers arts-based events throughout the week of Day of Peace, including visual art, live music, children's activities, community gatherings, college programs, a peace meal, a peace pole installation and a living peace sign.  Passionate about the connection between poetry and peace, Anne is the contributing editor of an annual collection of peace poems that InSpiritry publishes each September, in conjunction with the Art of Peace - Tyler celebration.

Over the past six years, poets from Texas, the U.S. and around the world have submitted their work to the Art of Peace anthologies, with outstanding writing related to the annual Art of Peace Tyler themes. Anthology titles have included PeaceWords, Hunger for Peace, Intertwined, Paths to Peace - Journey to Wholeness, and Building Bridges - Making Peace.

The 2018 anthology theme is Sowing Seeds of Peace.

A reading of the 2018 Art of Peace - Tyler poetry anthology, along with a Peace Words Concert of Poetry, Stories and Spoken Word, will be held during Art of Peace - Tyler on Saturday, September 22, at 7 pm at the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship in Tyler.
