This website is really about you. The Free Poet strives to make poetry available to everyone. You don't have to have a Masters in Fine Arts (MFA) to appreciate, write, or critique poetry. We honestly feel that there is a poet in everyone and once that voice is expressed, it will ignite a passion and love for poetry.
We realize that not everyone has the same level of writing skills and that there are those who have difficultly in conveying into words their personal feelings and experiences. To this end, we encourage everyone to read the work of other poets. It is from such reading that you may gain knowledge, understanding, and confidence which may enable you to become a better writer and poet.
Creating poetry is a process that takes time, patience, and thought. Finding your voice, or voices, may come from many different sources and experiences. The forms of poetry are varied and encompass a wide range of types and subjects. Feel free to browse our submissions and archives. We appreciate your comments and look forward to receiving your submissions.
This is a shared experience, as we develop this website and strive to become appreciated and accepted by you and maybe the poetry community in general, we hope that you will glean some measure of pride in being associated with us from our current humble beginnings.
Our funding source is from your submissions, without which, this website, and our future dreams publishing journal of poetry would not be possible.
