Behind the scenes at Tweetspeak, we dream.
We dream of a world where poetry can be found everywhere.
Why do we bother to dream? Because we believe in the power of words to delight, heal, give hope, and challenge—to make us, as it were, alive twice.
As our dear Claire Burge says to our Managing Editor, “I love your dreams and I really believe we will see the day when poetry fills bus stops and trains and billboards and when it becomes the next big graffiti trend.”
How will we make these dreams come true? We’ve got ideas. Like Poetry at Work Day. We also think it makes sense, since the Internet is our biggest playground, to put poetry everywhere in the cyberworld—to reach into millions of hearts and souls and then into on-the-ground communities and cities. If we could send a poem to the moon, we’d try that too. But for now, will you help us share and promote poetry everywhere in cyberspace?
Join us, if you dare to dream. Find us in these spaces (see below). Use these spaces to show us where you’re finding the best in poetry and poetic things. We want to hear from you and connect with you. Together, maybe we can make this dream come true…
