The editor had invited the world’s poets to join this anthology, in a letter in which he wrote:

“Arabian Nights (1001 Nights) is a literary work that inspired the world’s creators, whether they were poets, novelists, painters, or film, theater makers and music composers. A world that mixes history and legend, a space to travel between illusion and reality.”

He asked;

“Have you read the Nights, or just some of its tales? Have you thought about expressing your admiration or discontent with them? Have you thought of writing a poem about Arabian Nights; characters, heroes, narrator, and the paths of their women and men.”

Then he concluded:

“Be Scheherazade or Dunyazad, act as Shahryar or Shah Zaman, do as Aladdin or Ali Baba, create your own poetic nights…. This is the theme for the new issue of the Silk Road Literature Series Anthology. You presented in the first issue (Asia Sings), you excelled in the second issue (Mediterranean Waves), and you shined in the third issue (Ancient Egyptians, Modern Poets), and we are waiting for you in the fourth issue (Arabian Nights, World Poems).
