Welcome to Poesie! Great poetry, curated daily. Free (with ads) or paid membership options available. Poesie is an app for poetry lovers. We are a community from all around the world that comes together to read, record, and discuss poetry - while helping contemporary poets earn payment for their work. Here’s how it works: • (Best of new and classic poetry) We partner with award-winning publishers to bring you selections from some of the best poetry books being published today. Each week we feature the work of a different poet, and we also mix in selections from the classics. • (Learn while you read) We start off on Mondays by learning a bit about the life of our featured poet. Then, we read a selection each morning from one of their books. By Sunday, we hope you've discovered a new favorite poet! • (Engage and interact) All of our poems are interactive and social, paired with audio and visual artwork. We encourage you to leave your own recordings and comments on poems you love… chatting with other readers is one of the best parts of the app. If you care about supporting the world of poetry, want to keep up a habit of reading poetry every day, and are excited to interact with other poetry lovers, we’d love to welcome you to Poesie. ------ Additional Features • Profiles - Save and revisit favorite works using your Poesie profile. You'll also get weekly recommendations based on your preferences. • Libraries - Explore our libraries of thousands of classic and contemporary poems. We also have a selection of short stories. • Programs - Our collection of curated poetry programs helps introduce you to eras and themes across the history of poetry. • Community - Not sure what you're in the mood for? Discovery poetry based on what's been trending in the community lately. ------ Poetry Libraries Contemporary poetry: Our contemporary poetry library ranges from debut publications to Pulitzer Prize-winning work and features poets from a variety of countries. We offer all poets we work with a share of all membership fees - so a portion of every subscription goes directly to supporting contemporary poetry. Classic poetry: Our classic poetry library guides you through the greatest poetry ever written from all around the world. You can explore the history of poetry with our poetry programs, search poetry by mood and genre, and even read short stories. Community poetry: We have a community library available to upload your own poems and read poetry by other users... please be supportive! You can also leave recordings, comment, and highlight your favorite lines on poems across the app. ------ Membership Options We offer a free version and a paid version. Free usage requires participating in advertisements: you’ll see ads on each poem screen, and a popup ad every few poems as you browse. A membership subscription gives you the preferred, uninterrupted experience… no ads! Membership dues are the price of a single book ($14.99/year), which are used to pay poets for selections from each book we feature and to cover development and support for the app. Both membership dues and ad revenue are shared with our publishing partners. Subscription options: (1) Monthly - $1.99/mo (2) Yearly - $14.99/year (save 30%) Please note: if you don't want to keep a subscription, make sure to cancel 24 hours before the next subscription period to avoid being charged.
