About Poets United

Poets United is a community for poets who blog. Our purpose is to unite the poets from all walks of life that are found in the blogosphere. Our goal is to provide an active and supportive community. We each write poetry for our own personal reasons, but if you are here, one of those reasons is to share your poetry with others. Below you will see just a small sampling of what goes on here at Poets United. We are all about our members and the community.

Sunday – Mary is in charge of Poetry Pantry (an Open Link experience) and Sherry is the alternative host. The Pantry will go live every Sunday at 1 a.m. Central Time.  It’s a day or two for our members and those just passing through to share their poetry with this community. We just ask that you visit others as they visit you rather than "link and run." The Mr. Linky for Poetry Pantry will close Monday at 12 p.m.  However, you are still able to comment on the poems that have been linked.

Monday – Sherry Blue Sky will alternate between three different features.  One week it will be the popular Life of a Poet interview series.  Another week it will be a Poem of the Week selected from works of members of Poets United.  A third week it will be a Blog of the Week

Tuesday –  Time to enjoy reading the interview, poem of the week, or blog of the week.

Wednesday – In Midweek Motif Susan Chast or Sumana Roy offer particular themes or topics to inspire us.


Friday –  Rosemary Nissen-Wade is responsible for (in random order of posting) I Wish I'd Written Thisa modern or contemporary poem for our community's reading pleasure; The Living Dead, selecting one from a past era; Moonlight Musings, where she reflects on matters poetic and actively invites discussion; and Thought Provokers, poems that invite pondering, and often surprise. Hopefully all of these will spark some wonderful discussions.


Poets United is not a place for advertisement or to blindly beg for followers. This is a place to explore and share the art of poetry. If you are looking to participate in a community with others like you then you have found the right place.  Make yourself at home and please enjoy everything our community has to offer.

The concept of our community is simple. Poets United asks that you support the other members found here in this community by commenting or interacting with them and their blogs.  This community is what you make of it. If you are active and comment often you will most likely find that so are others. If you feel inclined to follow the blogs found here that is all the better for us as Poets United. Please see our member list tab  for current active members and their blogs or just explore our blogroll on the right sidebar.

This community is not meant to be used in a negative manner. We ask that you be respectful of all the people on this site as each individual poet is entitled to their own opinion, style, and path to creativity.

Thank you for your creativity, it is your imagination that fuels the world.
