A call to all poets: Get published in an anthology published by Paper Towns & curated by best-selling author Rishabh Puri

We know of the nights you couldn’t sleep, the nights you spent bleeding on the paper pouring your pain and yearnings. We want to honour those endless hours you spent mastering your poems. Here is a chance for you to get your poems published and get the recognition you deserve. We want to bring your poems out of your diaries to pages of a book.

The Bookoholics has partnered with Paper Towns Publishers & national best-selling author Rishabh Puri for this wonderful project.

Topic: Faith and Hope

Unlearn whatever you have learned about these words. Breathe these words as naked and raw as possible and you will find yourself breathing out the poems that will restore faith, inspire people, give them something to hope for and your words will live on forever in those hearts.
