The New Verse News

The New Verse News covers the news of the day with poems on issues, large and small, international and local.

It relies on the submission of poems (especially those of a politically progressive bent) by writers from all over the world. The editors update the website every day or two with the best work received.

What’s best?

A genuinely poetic take on a very current and specific news story or event.
