Andrews McMeel Publishing presents Re:ad Poetry, a digital hub designed to celebrate poets around the world, encourage readers to discover poetry in its modern forms, and provide a familiar but current look into the human experience.
tandAn Instagram handle and a website, Re:ad Poetry amassed thousands of followers and received hundreds of unique visits on its launch day, July 30, 2018. These numbers show the poetry community’s need for a supportive space to share their thoughts, feelings and experiences.
The medium continues to become more accessible through social media, open mics, music and more. Re:ad Poetry aims to celebrate and connect the modern poet and reader through original content, including blog posts written by guest contributors, video interviews with AMP authors, and a way for readers to share their favorite poems as well as write their own.
