Call for Stories: We;Poetry Global

WE; POETRY GLOBAL is a community providing a digital space for live online poetry open mics, providing a safe, open platform for poets and spoken word artists to share their works with fellow creatives from around the world.

We believe that words have the power to change our tomorrows, so let our messages and voices be heard… today.

Share Your Poetry

As a global pandemic takes over, there are many hidden stories and unseen struggles.We; Poetry Global wants to help provide an outlet for expressing the current thoughts and feelings of its members. So, we are partnering with CoronaVideo, calling for video submissions of works (original poems or songs) inspired or influenced by COVID-19 and the lockdown. We believe that even in dark times, there is still a light from within us. Let us document this moment, for our future selves, and generations to come.

Through this collection of poems and songs, we aim to show that even in the darkest times there is still a light from within through the powers of emotion, words and most importantly art.


In this extraordinary moment of a global pandemic, may we turn our anguish into poetry and our despair into song. We are grateful to WE; POETRY GLOBAL for helping us discover and celebrate inspiring works of humanity and hope.
