Edgar Allan Poet: Journal #1 (Volume 1) edited by Apryl Skies is a collection of poetry featuring poems from Contributors of the Edgar and Lenore Publishing House. This introduces readers to story telling poetry, prose, visual poetry, and lyric poetry. Edgar Allen Poet: Journal #1 is a collection of poetry written brilliantly and creatively by 32 poetic artists – writers of the Edgar and Lenore Publishing House.

Poetic art, or poems and prose, are often overlooked as being art. Each poet-artist has their own unique and creative work but all seem to intertwine and flow into a theme of ethereal realms touching on the mystery of oceans and lunarscapes. Readers can find themselves expressively opening up and comprehending the pure emotion each writer has poured onto each page.

The contributors of this journal introduce readers to the elements of powerful raw emotion from deep within each piece. All poetic pieces have a personal meaning and understanding which represent the writers' thoughts; each poem and prose can be given an entirely different understanding by a reader. The beauty of poetry is not only trying to decipher what the writer or artist meant within the works, but the intriguing aspect of how readers themselves relate to and comprehend the poetry. The writers-authors-poets within this journal steal the soul of a reader with the incredibly interesting, well-written, natural element of each written piece.
