React Poetically

Topical Poetry is an all-inclusive webzine, publishing diverse poems on current events and news. Launched in 2021, it combines the power of poetry and the dynamism of modern societies. In this ever-changing world, the life of topical news is short but the impact it has on us can be phenomenal. Poetry on current events can be transformational, thought-provoking, and everlasting. Most of the traditional poetry magazines take months to publish and do not suit this form of poetry – hence the idea of topical poetry was born!

Topical Poetry aims to create a safe and encouraging space for global poets to show their reactions to recent events and news. There is no constraint on the form of poetry or the nature of the topic – anything that inspires you!
