Find your next Poetry read

From Emily Dickinson to Sylvia Plath, poetry has always exerted great literary influence and provoked immense passion in its readers. Indeed, poetry is an art form to which almost everyone can relate, and in which anyone can participate — and here on Reedsy Discovery, we encourage you to do just that!

Sift through our best indie poetry books to find writers baring their souls about life, love, and what it means to be human. No matter what shape these poems take, you’ll be touched by their artistry and meaning… and perhaps even roused to jot down a few verses yourself.

Furthermore, if you want recommendations from people who love poetry just as much as you do, make sure to follow our poetry reviewers on Discovery. Keep your nose to the ground, and you might just be one of the first to discover (or become!) the next Rupi Kaur.
