About Us

For centuries, poetry was a unifying force in society: farmers and aristocrats alike shared a common knowledge and participated, to a large extent, in a common poetic story. Nowadays, things have changed. Poetry has been pigeon-holed to the classroom or the academy, and therefore become less approachable. Our project is to reclaim poetry one poem at a time, placing it back in the rightful hands of the people!
