emanilapoetry is a multi-author site and a network member website of the award-winning EMANILA.com. It started as a small section of EMANILA.com in 2003 to provide a platform for emanila members to promote their works in the internet.
With its growing membership, emanilapoetry expanded to house two other internet poetry properties, TULANGPINOY and PINOYVERSES, for poems written in Filipino (and other Philippine language) and English, respectively.
On 19 June 2005, emanilapoetry formally launched with its own domain name. At its opening, the poetry site had thousands of compositions from Filipino poets and poetry enthusiasts from various countries. Some of them confess that writing poetry was only a hobby. Hobby or not, some of the compositions reflect the creativity and insight of the Filipino. Some of the poems profess the writers’ longing for the Motherland, some are expression of love for someone, some are critical look at the environment and society, and some are simply random thoughts beautifully expressed in lyrical forms.
In February 2006, emanilapoetry released its first anthology, Sa Kabila ng Ritmo: Mga Piling Tula ng mga Bagong Makata.
Today, emanilapoetry is the internet home of writers and poets from Australia, Austria, Canada, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Japan, Korea, Kuwait, Philippines, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Taiwan, United Arab Emirates, and United States.
As of 20 January 2009, emanilapoetry has a collection of more than 10,000 poem entries from more than
1,000 1,300 members and contributing writers.
