What is Poets at Work?

about poets at work

Poets at Work™ is a US-based, non-profit organization with an international focus. Our mission is to bridge the gap that exists between poets of different countries, honoring the variety of cultural aesthetics, forms and beliefs about poetry. The Poets At Work website functions as a social media hub for poets, as well as a forum for poets on prosody, focusing on building a larger audience for poetry internationally and fostering the creation of new works.
We are committed to connecting poets worldwide through readings, conferences, interviews and reviews of poetry collections from all countries. In 2014, Poets at Work™ will launch our first annual contest, publishing 1-2 full-length poetry books written in English (or translated into Engligh) to be published by Poets at Work Press.
