Poets Built It Online Community

Built by Poets. Originally supported by Apples & Snakes Poetry.

Our Big Purpose

To hold a calm, dedicated space for new and established Poets, Spoken Word & Live Literature Artists Word Warriors internationally, where as a global collective, we can share the common experience of becoming and being a poet.

We bring Poets, Spoken Word & Live Lit Artists, Word Warriors together to this safe space who are experiencing tough changes, pain points or stuckness in their writing and creative lives and in search of new perspectives.

We participate in, create and deliver poetry workshops and specialist and masterclasses, to learn from each other's diverse experiences of how we uplift and deepen our practice of the poetic word.
In Poets Built It we
1) deep dive into craft, 
2) encourage experimentation,
3) host honest conversations around 
the business of poetry.

We bring together poets seeking community to strengthen our practices as writers and forge strong connections for collaborations on poetry anthologies and online zines, poetry films and other mix media creations so that we can elevate each other's work and collectively amplify our voices.

We offer this space for poets to explore the depth and breadth of the writing and performance process so that you can feel refreshed, enabled, invigorated and newly inspired, supported by other poets who understand.

Welcome To Poets Built It!

...and it's Apples birthday!
We want to thank the poets across the decades who have made it possible for us to spread the colour and vibrancy of the poetic word for the cultural health of the UK and internationally.
