Poetry Asylum is creating poetry to the people, for the people, by the people.

patron

Poetry Asylum creates diverse platforms outside privileged spaces to bring poetry to traditionally marginalized communities through open dialogue, innovation, collaboration & advocacy [& in some cases, bring marginalized voices INTO privileged, white spaces]. In recognition of the urgencies of our political moment, Poetry Asylum aims to provide refuge for underrepresented voices by celebrating the expansive field of language & expression in all its forms.

We want to build networks around the idea that poetry is egalitarian, humanist & political. In a nutshell: poetry to the people, for the people, by the people. We will live in both virtual & physical realms––offering workshops, readings, events, an online magazine, etc. for established/emerging writers as well as those considered to be on the fringe: incarcerated individuals, veterans, elderly, disabled, immigrants, refugees, among others.

Please visit our website thisispoetryasylum.com for more details. We are also on FB, Instagram, and Twitter, so please follow us for events, workshops, and other activities.
