Carcinogenic Poetry 200 Posts Strong!

Carcinogenic Poetry celebrated its 200th post today, marking a year and a half of sharing poetry from independent, literary voice. To date many poets have passed through the halls of Carcinogenic Poetry from traditional writers, to publishers, radio hosts, visual artists, editors, professors, doctors, laymen, entrepeneurs, all walks of life and they are all from the underground. These are the voices you will not hear anywhere else, lest they be amongst the ranks of independent and small lit culture itself. Carcinogenic Poetry was created as a beacon of truth in the vast expanse of the poetic genre; it has become a venue of choice, playing host to many influential and popular names: Felino A. Soriano, Ross Vassilev, Joe Milford, Gillian Prew,  John Sibley Williams, Michael Mc Aloran, Ivan Jenson, Carly Bryson,  A.J. Kaufmann, Howie Good to name a few. 
Carcinogenic Poetry publishes on a rolling basis and posts new poetry about once a week. At the end of the year, the blog is anthologized in an annual year book– the Carcinogenic Poetry Print Anthology. Last year we topped 300 pages with over 100 poets featured. The anthology proved to be a great hallmark of modern literature and a signature of the voice and future of the independent literate. We welcome all to be apart of the spectacle again. We are about half-year and are looking to release the second volume anthology in December. Submit now. Don’t forget, reprints ARE ACCEPTABLE. PLEASE READ GUIDELINES for full details. Thanks again to everyone who contributes to Carcinogenic Poetry and thanks to both the readers and writers who always return. Blessing be to all.
