Hello dear reader,

I have a favor to ask. More people are using Hello Poetry than ever, yet it is increasingly hard to keep afloat. Unlike most web companies, I don't sell your information to advertisers-- I want to remain independent so decisions are aligned with your needs, not those of advertisers. This is why I'm asking for your help. Running Hello Poetry takes a lot of time, money and hard work, but we need a place like this in the world.

A place safe for the expression of our joy, yearning and chaos; our poetry. A place quiet and tolerant enough for our reflection and feeling. And, ultimately, a place we can connect with each other and belong.

If you like Hello Poetry and can afford to support it, please do.

xx Eliot York
