There are more poets writing today than ever before in history. Despite rumors that poetry is dead, poetry is actually alive and well in homes, classrooms, and workplaces all around the world. And I’m not just talking about the same ten stuffy poets we all learn in high school. I’m talking about living, breathing poets struggling at their craft, publishing in a diverse range of literary magazines, and reading the work of other poets.
