Poetryfans.com was first launched in 2003. Since the beginning we have been dedicated to advancing poetry appreciation while providing a platform where visitors to the site can recommend poems or share their own poems. We have been delighted that people from around the world have contributed to the site. We believe that there is much to be learrned from reading about such diverse experiences revealed in poetry, and that is enriching to see how others use the medium of poetry to express themselves.
The Web site began as part of a special journey two people experienced by sharing their thoughts and feelings through the magic of poetry.
We come from two different cultures, one of us from the West, the other from the East, and poetry was the bridge that connected us. Our journey taught us how powerful poetry could be in reaching into the mystery of our hearts, and how it could help us transcend the artificial barriers that can arise from differences in cultural, racial, national, or religious backgrounds.
We invite anyone who wishes to share their poetry with others to send us a poem or recommend one. Poets submitting poems to poetryfans.com retain the copywright on their work. It is our sole decision on which poems to post and how long they are posted.
We intend that the site offer a selection of poets' work, not a repository so please refrain from sending too often. We recognize that some poets submit more often and as stated it is our sole discretion which poems to post. In some cases, we may remove previous posts if a poet continues to send, so please be aware of that if you intend to submit often. There is no hard and fast rule about how many poems one poet can submit. The better the poems, the more likely they will remain posted.
If at any time you have any questions or concerns, please contact email@example.com, and we will try to get back to you in a timely fashion.
Thank you poetry fans for all you have contributed over the years. We hope you will continue to enjoy poetryfans.com. Great poems are continually being added.
