National Poetry Month 2020

What if your poetry could be connected to an intimate public square full of like-minded writers?

For this year's National Poetry Month, we want to give people the opportunity to share their original poetry to our vibrant community of poets, writers, and bloggers — Read It's a place where your real-life identity doesn't matter as much as the words you share.


  1. Fill out the form below with your real name or pen name & your email address (we'll only use it to let you know if your work has been accepted).

  2. Click “Start Writing” to be taken to the submission editor. Draft out your original poetry there. When you're ready, click the “Publish” icon in the top right.

  3. Once your submission has been sent, we'll review it and inform you via your provided email address if the work has been accepted. Once accepted, your poetry will be published on Read under the #NationalPoetryMonth section.
