Kin Welcome

Hello everyone and welcome to the blog of Kin Poetry Journal!

We hope that Kin becomes a part of your daily reading. We are working hard to provide the best poems, essays, interviews, video and audio from poets writing in English from around the world. Each day, we’ll bring you fresh content: new poems, neglected poems, guerilla video and other features, including news of new publications and other items of interest in the poetry world. You can keep up with what is going on at Kin though our Twitter feed and through our postings on Facebook.

The first issue of Kin launches on July 18th, 2012. Over the next few months, we’ll be adding links and other features to make Kin more comprehensive, interactive and user-friendly. We will be asking the assistance of readers and writers from every corner of the globe to help improve our site. We cannot do it alone.

Today is just a snapshot of what the future holds. We invite you to join us for the journey. We hope that you will bookmark us and tell your friends, wherever they might be. Or drop us a line at and say, “Hello.”

All the best,

Wendy, Uche, Walter and Eric
