Poets Reading the News is a digital platform that publishes original poetry about current events. You can visit us online here. We believe in the power of poetry to transform the world and how we see each other. We call it journalism in verse.

To date we've published hundreds of original poems and featured poet laureates, award-winning journalists, emergent writers and poetic activists. Our publication provides a space of solace, meaning and complexity to a society overwhelmed by its headlines. We're out to prove what we know is true: in times of darkness, poetry is essential reading.

This platform wouldn't exist without your incredible support. We're entirely community-supported and you are bringing this project to life. That's why cofounders Elle and Jenna, this project's young and ambitious editors, have worked around the clock to transform this idea into a thriving publication with one of the poetry scene's most passionate and involved audiences.

We have big plans for the future and with your help they'll become a reality. We want to publish books, grow our audience, host more of our readings and workshops, take our project on the road to schools and cultural centers - and more, so much more!

With your invaluable support, we are creating a movement. Thank you for joining us!
