A Brave Space Poets is an inclusive online community in which members share, appreciate, discuss, question, and are inspired by poetry. This community offers a space for self-reflection, for finding inspiration in thoughtful, deliberate, and beautiful language. In this group, members share poems written by published authors, or non-published work with permission. Including a link to the poem or information about the author is encouraged. Members are also encouraged to share their own original work with the understanding that this group is not intended to be a “workshop” space, but a space for sharing, reflection, and appreciation.
Please Join Us!
This group is open to everyone from newcomers who are curious about poetry to long-time poetry lovers. No poetry experience required! No need to have a Facebook account to participate.
