I'm Eliot and I started Hello Poetry in 2009. It remains a labour of love, however the cost and time to run the site has increased considerably as the community has grown. If you're able, please consider supporting Hello Poetry stay online in the following ways. I wouldn't be able to do it without your support. Thank you.

The Gift of Light

You can support Hello Poetry and writers in the community by "shining light" on poems. You can buy suns using the button below or by clicking the icon after reading a poem. You can read more about this in the announcement on the blog or in the FAQs.
