We, Creative Talents Unleashed understand the desire to have your voice heard, what it’s like to have a dream, what it takes to see it to fruition. Our dream was to create a platform for writers and poets to express themselves, to share their innermost gifts with the community; their fellow writers and literary world at large.
We have attempted this goal by way of providing publishing opportunities, such as the anthologies you see here and publishing contests sponsored by the Starving Artist Fund. Our vision, to build a sanctuary for inspired minds from all walks of life, a place free of many of the prejudices and restraints that hinder the creative spirit begun with our first anthology Love, A Four Letter Word.
Our goal was not to start a business, but to create a family, a movement of powerful voices of like minds, pushing together to bring forth a future we envision. One where our voices are counted and heard. For us there is no greater reward then assisting someone in reaching their publishing goal. It’s not easy, we’ve been there, and this is how we choose to contribute; to give back to society.
As we all know, in order for a dream to become reality a set of actions on the part of the visionary/writer/poet must take place. What are you willing to do to achieve your dream, to see a vision become reality? What sacrifices are you ready to make? Creative Talents Unleashed puts in countless hours and resources (financial and otherwise) daily to keep our vision of establishing a platform for your voice to be heard.
We are counting on you to do your part by supporting the dream we all share, purchasing the very anthologies you request to be a part of is one way. Forging a bond of solidarity with your fellow writers and poets and those that give birth to platforms that promote writing is another. In a time where it has become increasingly difficult to publish promote and tell our stories, it is a must that we support each other.
We strive to be a publishing family that supports the family members within. You can count on this family to be your cheer leader, purchase your books when feasible, and help promote your work and all forms of creative endeavors.
Thank you for your participation and understanding,
Creative Talents Unleashed
I have participated in a number of submissions by Creative Talents Unleashed & recently participated in their “Love Is A Four Lettered Word”, together with very talented poets which was a great honor for me. I would just like to say that in my past experiences in publishing I have never met a more professional group of people, really dynamic. They inform the writers all through the publishing process so that we know exactly what is happening in everything & even asking for our ideas on titles, cover art etc. They are pleasant to work with in such a friendly manner that it is a joy & pleasure to be part of what I consider a family. They are also discerning in the talent they select so that the standard is uniform, which I think is a very good move. I thank them for their time, professional integrity & interest.

Thank you Shihi, it is an honor to have you among us.
It was here I found a mind similar to mine, where I had many profound discussions that was so in tune with my own thoughts, which gave my soul a riveting affect. That keeps conversations endless in interest.
