A 21st Century Poetry Publication
Welcome to the home page for The Poeteer.
Poetry has been called "The Longest Living Dying Art" but Local Gems Press says that poetry is perfectly alive and well--and in fact has been on an up-swing the last 10-15 years.
The Poeteer seeks to be a new voice for poets of the 21st century. We seek poetry that is relevant to today's world.
All forms/types/genres will be considered.
The Poeteer is also interested in short-bits of commentary (1000 words or less) on the current state of poetry in the 21st Century. Let us know about your poetry communities, workshops, groups and how poetry is handled where you are.

What Exactly Does The Poeteer Look For In Poetry?
The Poeteer seeks to prove that poetry is still relevant in the 21st century by publishing poetry that has something to do with the time we live in. The poetry should be something that readers can identify with, relate to and think that the verse mirrors or is similar to some small aspect of their own life. For a very long time poetry was a bit of emotional clarity, a reflection from someone else on current issues or events. We are interested in poetry about high school, poetry about the internet age, poems about current political issues, poems about television shows, poems about education, poems about poverty, poems about college tuition, poems about the job market, poems about the environment, poems about the difficulty of making friends in the digital age. All these and more will be considered so long as they are relevant in some way, shape, or form to the time we live in.
