What is this?

CharlestonPoets.com’s mission isn’t complicated. We want to unite Charleston’s poetry community, promote local poets + events and be an outlet for poets to share their work. This is open to every poet in the Charleston area. If you want to share your work on our site, please email submit@charlestonpoets.com.
