What People are Saying

"The people I have met through Poetry Out Loud are incredibly welcoming, kind, and supportive. Everyone's main motive truly is to share and celebrate poetry. Poetry Out Loud taught me that, however paradoxical it may seem, competitions do not always have to be purely competitive. They can be celebratory and supportive and fun as well."
