Poets Unlimited

Medium's long-running, poetry-only publication. A diverse, engaging and authentic few-times-a-week poetry magazine. Original poetry only, look elsewhere for prose. Readable by all - membership not required. [The Guidelines page indicates when we're open to new poets.]


It’s Ross, who lives in Ottawa, curates the “Poets Unlimited” publication & writes a bit too. Pull up a chair & read a while.
