Putting The Poems First Is What We Do

Read Poems. Post Poems. Get Feedback

Sure, DarkPoetry was originally just a place to post poems and get quality feedback.

But it became much more. In its 14+ years of quiet existence in the underbelly of the internet, DarkPoetry has attracted a diverse corpus of talented poets, conspiring to develop the dark art of the spoken miracle.

Join DarkPoetry (free) and become friends with some truly fascinating people. And you are always welcome to share your poems in this non-judgmental environment.

DarkPoetry Gets Real

Dear Member, Let's kill some loneliness together. Some of the most enjoyable times I've had with friends were at official DarkPoetry Meetings. There's a bond that we all share, and it's not something that your average joe is going to pick up on or appreciate. We just "click" for the most part. We know that there's something almost spiritual about putting our souls on the page and sharing our meticulously crafted soul gems with others. Reflecting back on those meetings and the community that we've continued to maintain since then, I think that one of the best things we can do to progress is to help members to make friends near where they live, so they too can have this kind of experience. The Portland Oregon group is expected to serve as a pilot of this effort, but it will be the only group that is managed (at least at first) by some of the same people that manage the site. Every other regional group will need to be organized and set up independently by members. We can't do it any other way because there just aren't the resources for it. We just ask you all to be good, kind, safe, and responsible. And use your oxford commas. If you feel like it. Please take a look at the proposed criteria for groups, and consider starting one in your area if you live outside the Portland metro area. Here's where you can start: https://darkpoetry.org/node/doc/local Lets get together and slay some demons. Yours in darkness, DarkPoet
