TSIY, Poems India

Poems India is proud to be a platform that inhabits poets and writers beyond geographical boundaries and time zones. We spare no effort in providing space and support to artists who stand out in the world of words and a poetic experience to the interested audiences. The Stage is Yours, is yet another footstep to make poetry break free and bring the finest quality of the written word of art to the stage. In this bi-monthly, online poetry showcase, our foremost aim stands to be able to allow the performers a real-time experience of being keenly listened to in a literary environment. The event encompasses a versatile ensemble of creative voices and a wide array of perspectives that will leave you inspired. People outside the world of poetry can join in as an audience to witness a poetically rich evening from the comfort of their homes. The spoken word event is an effort to make the stage inclusive and accessible to all individuals from diverse backgrounds and journeys.
