Fixed and Free : Poetry Anthology 2015
Continuing in a tradition of collaboration Fixed and poetry anthology 2015 presents its second volume of poems submitted by writers who have participated in the Fixed and Free monthly poetry reading hosted by Billy Brown in Albuquerque, New Mexico, now in its seventh year. Celebrating poets from differing generations, ethnicities and cultural settings, this anthology proffers a variety of poetic forms including the sestina, haiku, open verse, slam and prose poetry. Rather than rely on a regional, academic or ideological theme, this collection includes a wide selection of poems from poets who meet monthly to perform and appreciate the written and spoken word. The strength of this endeavor resides in the dedication of its participants to value community above all other identifiers. The reader will not only experience the literary qualities inherent in this work but can join with others in the camaraderie and spirit of authentic collaboration.

About Billy Brown
Billy Brown's life purpose is joy! He practices joy via: mathematics and statistics education; singing tenor; cooking, catering and baking; and writing, hosting and publishing poetry. "Fixed and Free Poetry Anthology 2015" is his fourth book, following "Brown Eyes and Beth Hugs: A Daddy Remembers His Daughter," "Poetic Sketches," and "Fixed and Free Poetry Anthology 2011." "Sunday Chatter Poems and Pastries," will appear in a few months. One of Billy's greatest joys is providing poets with opportunities to read their poetry in public and to publish their poems. Life is too short not to experience joy each day!
