UniVerse of Poetry is an online archive, interactive forum, and celebration of international poetry encouraging universal dialogue, compassion and peace. UniVerse honors courageous, celebrated poets from every nation of the world, regardless of territory, also including oral traditionalists, poets writing in endangered languages and poets collaborating with music and film. "One Poem: The Next Generation" will soon introduce international young people's poetry.

UniVerse of Free Expression
UniVerse of Poetry initiates an unprecedented opportunity for international poets—many of whom are refugees—to be heard, read and studied. These poets often transcend hardship, isolation, and exile to write the enduring human story.

UniVerse of Poetry is dedicated to freedom of expression for everyone everywhere and the eternal dialogue of wisdom and prophetic sanity renewed daily by poets internationally.
