This first anthology book, aptly titled Voices Of the Aspirants, showcases the poems of winners from my group POETRY PLANET in Facebook. With the poetry contests I conduct, weekly Lovely Game Poetry Challenge, the daily Photo-poetry challenge and monthly Contemporary Challenge. I was able to compile winning poems from hundreds of aspirant poets from their brilliant participation from May to December 2016. I am indebted to all of them. In 2016, the group was started with just a handful of friends. The objective of the group (and my dream) is to promote the art of aspirant poets irrespective of religion, color and country to build up a common platform that would establish the poetry of our era as a continuation of the flow of unity in diversity. Today, the group is over 11,000 members strong; it is a testimonial to poets and poetry lovers marching hand-in- hand towards a better world. I take this opportunity to personally thank, Sukanto Roy, who helped me in creating meaningful games that help aspirants in their writing and Colin W Hill who deserves special mention and appreciation from all concerned for making it possible to publish this work. Judges from different countries all over the world have selected the winners of the Poetry Planet contests. I gratefully acknowledge their voluntary literary contributions in this regard. Readers feedback will enrich us, no doubt.
