City of Poets

 The foundational principals of City of Poets are: 

all of womb born are poets • 

the story of each of us is uniquely valuable

poetry has a capacity to unite* • 

 

*the Physical, Intellectual, 

Emotional, Spiritual selves—PIES

 

These past two years have been like growing ivy –

the  first year it sleeps, the second it creeps, the third it leaps.

Having followed the strategy put in place at its launch in May 2022,

growth at City of Poets is now truly leaping.

There are a lot of moving parts.

Jointly and separately these parts work to bring poetry into mainstream life,

to elevate the healing and social benefits of poetry,

as well as to increase profile and income for poets.
