Finding, supporting, nurturing, leading and promoting the best undiscovered poetic talent from around the globe.
Home to the world's most extensive poetry community, The Poetry Cove strives to be a home for poets across the globe. Its mission is to provide the most extensive, supportive, and safest place for anyone looking to dive into the world of poetry. We aim to do this by bringing together poets of varying knowledge and ability to share their work, promote themselves, gain constructive feedback, meet and discuss with like-minded people, make friends, to learn, and escape the realities of the world for a little while.
Launching in four phases, we look to bring all things poetry under one roof. Initially launching with phase 1, where we have created our popular member's forum (the beating heart of what we do) as well as having various social media pages to spread the word, and featuring the very best of independent poets and their work. Eventually we plan to have a 24hr poetry radio station, accessible to everyone around the world, which will be accompanied by a poetry podcast in phase 2, a magazine and blog in phase 3, and then finally a fully functioning publishing house that will prioritise poets of exceptional ability and varying voices, who may not necessarily be able to get their foot in the door of the bigger houses.
With all of that being said, we cannot fully realise our vision without your help. Creating the world's most extensive poetry community comes at a cost and we rely on our members to help keep our platform alive. We are incredibly appreciative to those who are able to donate to our cause, no matter how big or how small, by using the donate button at the bottom of this page. You can also help by purchasing some merchandise in our store, of which money raised will be reinvested into our upkeep and expansion. We are also incredibly reliant on the powerful 'word of mouth'. If you enjoy your time here with us, please do tell your friends, family, and anyone who would listen about us!
We sincerely hope you enjoy your time with us, and we look forward to welcoming you to our family.
The Poetry Cove was created by Adam Gary to fight against the institutions that keep their doors firmly closed to budding poets around the world. It is our core mission to create opportunities to those who have proven their dedication to the craft, regardless of their backgrounds.
It is our firm belief that opportunities should be given to those who have proven their passion and talent to poetry whether they have an extensive list of existing achievements or not.
However, being home to the most extensive poetry community and providing those opportunities comes with a heavy financial upkeep. We rely heavily on membership subscriptions, service bookings - such as those through our academy, merchandise purchases and of course, our very generous supporters.

We are proud of the environment that has been cultivated on the forum and look forward to welcoming many new poets in the future.
