Poets Against War continues the tradition of socially engaged poetry by creating venues for poetry as a voice against war, tyranny and oppression.

Thank you for your poem and for joining in this collective protest against the Bush administration's war against Iraq. Poems submitted here will be published on this web site. Poems submitted before March 1 2003 were delivered to Congress on March 5th as part of the largest chorus of poets in history.
Guidelines: You may submit either a poem or a statement against the war. You may submit more than one poem. Please limit your poem to no more than about a page (we cannot publish epics or tomes), and submit no more than 3 poems. All poems must be against the war; no pro-war poems, no hate-filled poems, no obscene poems will be published. You may format your poem by adding html tags. We hope to publish your poem within a few days of its submission.
