It’s quick and easy to create an anthology of poems—on a specific theme or a collection of favorites—to share with students or friends.

  • Log in to Poets.org by clicking the "User Log In" link at the top of this page. 
  • Navigate to any poem you want to include in your anthology.
  • Click the “+” icon, which appears at the top of any poem.
  • Follow the prompts to create a title for a new anthology or add the poem to one of your existing anthologies listed in the dropdown.

You can share anthologies via the URLs or embed them in a web page by clicking the "< >" icon (to the left of the "+" icon on any poem page), copying the HTML code that pops up, and pasting it into the source code of your web page. Your anthologies are saved and viewable on your profile page. Enjoy!
