About the movement

Poets & Artists For A Different World sets out to be THE home for poetry on the web, and by this to assert the importance of poetry itself as an instrument of change and enlightenment, to provide a meeting place for the human spirit, where it can grow in surprising new directions.The group believes that the world itself is a poem, one which we are all writing. And we want it to be, as Byron said of himself: not good, but great. In a 24-hour news culture the individual voice can rarely be heard. Poets & Artists For A Different World seeks to provide a forum for memorable speech by exceptional voices, where all hands reach out to all others, a place where those individual voices can be heard, for the sakeof our present mood and as a gift to future generations.The aim is simple enough: to attract, find, educe, and encourage the best, most interesting voices, and to be a place where excellence can be championed and the soul thrilled and refreshed. New poems and pictures will be posted all the time. So this is the world’s spirit, mind, heart and soul speaking to itself. And if the aliens come and want to find out what humanity is like, let them look here to discover what we are like, can be like, should be like, and how we suffer because we are not quite there yet.The site is free and open to all. It already includes poets and artists from all over the world. It is without borders, a place for the cool kids and the world-is-a-village elders to gather together, a reflection of that better world to come, when all conflict is finished, and people can get on with their real work of loving and understanding each other and their planet home. It is a place of clear humanist light within the world’s great babble, where we can educate our feelings and liberate ourselves to take new roads ahead.Come one, come all, roll up, roll up, walk with us in the virginal .
forests…….Each poem, each picture, is our greatest adventur.

  2. This sounds excellent. Although I admit the lack of paragraph structure meant I didn’t read all of what you wrote.

    I am a poet of the Millenial generation. What I see is a decline in literacy, and creative critical thinking. Literature has been cast aside, and exiled to the dusty shelves of public libraries. My generation no longer understands or speaks the language of a poet. They don’t easily understand the depth of metaphor and simile, or the subtlety of rhyme, meter, and cadence. Byron, Keats, Blake, Shakespeare, Pound, Eliot, Ginsberg have all been forgotten.

    The role of the poet must be to engage ‘culture’ as a mouthpiece of truth. As James K. Baxter wrote, we are to be “one cell of living in a corrupt society.” May the cause flourish! God knows we need the poet to shake us out of our apathy and content.
