anxious poets society
bringing together anxious poets from around the world
Radiate, resonate. Repeat.
After a wild few years, we are back.
We've missed you so much.
For those of you visiting us for the first time, welcome.
We believe that poetry is not only an effective therapeutic outlet, but a necessary practice
in a reality that we can barely wrap our minds around, often causing varying levels of psychic pain.
If you don't effectively channel that energy somewhere, it can quite literally break your heart.
We aim to continue to showcase emotionally-charged, expressive, cathartic,
manic, blissful, depressive, complicated but simple, simple but complicated,
beautifully bizarre poems, experimental or traditional, or a splendid mix of both,
written by humans who aren't afraid to feel feelings and
humans who might be terrified of said feelings.
Since we first began this project in the Summer of 2018,
we have published emerging and established poets from all over the world
with the intention of fostering a sense of community and
collective healing through the power of poetry.
We couldn't do this without your endless support. Thank you for reading.
