¿What is WPM?

World Poetry Movement is a coordination of organizations and poets: international poetry festivals, educational projects and poetry publishing houses, and more than 2,000 poets from 150 nations on all continents.

The World Poetry Movement promotes poetry as an essential form of expression and communication for humanity. Poetry is an art form and a tool for social and cultural transformation.

The World Poetry Movement encourages cooperation among poets worldwide, who share their cultural perspectives and experiences through poetry. The movement advocates for freedom of expression and human rights, which are fundamental for the protection of poets and their work. In an increasingly divided world, poetry and the voices of poets create a global connection and promote peace, unity, and mutual understanding.
