Read Poems. Post Poems. Get Feedback

Sure, DarkPoetry was originally just a place to post poems and get quality feedback.

But it became much more. In its 14+ years of quiet existence in the underbelly of the internet, DarkPoetry has attracted a diverse corpus of talented poets, conspiring to develop the dark art of the spoken miracle.

Join DarkPoetry (free) and become friends with some truly fascinating people. And you are always welcome to share your poems in this non-judgmental environment.
See the titles below for recent news items posted by the staff!

Back To School

After a hiatus, DP College is back in session. More than twenty students have successfully completed this course and earned the title of "Scholar." We'd love to add your name to their ranks.

For 10 ducats (additional donations are welcome), you will learn the basics of poetry and participate in informal weekly discussions of your poetry and process with regular evaluation of your progress. Classes can be attended at any time during each week and begin on January 4, 2016 and run through March 13th.

To sign up, just send 10 ducats to the able and experienced instructor, GhettoZombie. As usual, space is limited to 20 people to ensure that all have a quality experience.

DarkPoetry Redesigned

Dear Member, I've heard through the grapevine that DarkPoetry's design has been borderline intolerable on mobile devices, so I took a (very long) day off from my usual work yesterday and redesigned the whole site to use responsive design grids: a fancy way to say that if the page won't fit comfortably on your screen, it will break itself into pieces and display in a long column instead.

Come have a look, allow yourself to adjust to the new icons, and please post any suggestions or problems that you notice in the General Help Forum, the second link in the new icon cluster at the top of logged-in pages.

Thanks for being a part of DarkPoetry, and helping us transition into the next era of the web. Best, Matt
