Purpose

POETRYREPAIRS introduces and encourages development of new and established poets [and writers on poetry-related subjects] who seek an international idiom in poetry,

POETRYREPAIRS explores all facets of poetry: its philosophy, literary criticism, theory and praxis. We invite informational, plain-language essays on poetry-related subjects: for example, local-provincial-regional-national-international-multicultural poetry, commentary, interviews, opinion, reviews of books-performances-writing programs, and discussions on issues relevant to poets, their poems, and poetry readers.

[POETRYREPAIRS seeks writers in the global creative community. We will publish local-provincial-regional-national-international-multicultural poetry, We favor writing that is reasoned/rational and accessible to international readers.]

POETRYREPAIRS wants you to gather with friends, to recite poetry over food and beverage, to debate its messages, and to light candles in darkened places.

poetryrepairs.com invites your essay on poetry, or on a poet or poets, and, also, essays on all things related to poetry, its theory and its practice. Or, simply comment on a poem/poet on poetryrepairs.com
