'Poetry Daily' - an anthology of contemporary poetry


Founded in 1997, 'Poetry Daily' is a 501(c)3 non-profit daily anthology of contemporary poetry. The editors read journals and books of poems first published from the widest range of sources they can find, from across the US and the world- and they continually seek to expand that reading. They carefully select the best and most interesting poems from those publications for their thousands of readers.

Each day they present one of those poems to you. Poems are chosen from the work of a wide variety of poets published or translated in the English language. Poetry’s most eminent writers are represented in their selections and also poets who are less well known. Included with each poem is information about the poet and the poem’s source.
