What is Poets and Muses? | Who’s Imogen Arate? | Awards | Press clippings | Interview requests
Listen to our “One-Minute Intro” or dive into more details below:
During each episode, two poems serve as the doorway into an exploration of diverse human experiences. Topics we’ve covered include love, climate change, friendships, mental and physical health, immigration, child abuse, sex, gender equality, refugee life, body imagery, indigenous rights, suicide, police brutality, death of loved ones, hope, human trafficking, nature, mass shootings, representation in media, terrorism, LGBTQIA rights, homelessness and families.
While we feature poets with a range of artistic history, the podcast is mainly a platform for emergent poetic voices from a variety of social-economic backgrounds.
In addition to showcasing an array of representative voices, Poets and Muses also aims to dispel misgivings and apprehension the listening public has toward poetry, as well as to inspire people to adopt poetry as a mode of self expression. Take a listen.
