Publish poems online

Writing poetry can in itself be enough fulfillment. Nevertheless: whoever writes also wants to be read. Even if only because you need feedback from the real world. Therefore I have one below list compiled with websites and forums where you can write your own Poems, poetry or prose can publish.


The e-Stories site went online in 1999 and is now an established platform for short stories and poems. Overall, texts can in 7 different languages can be uploaded, receiving feedback directly from the community.

The reading magnifier has also been online for more than 20 years and now has an archive of more than 70,000 short stories and poems. Here you have various forums to choose from, in which you can publish your self-written poems.

Addendum from June 25, 2019


An attentive reader pointed me to the page Gedichte.com, which I unfortunately overlooked during my research. Thanks a lot for this! The poetry forum should definitely not be missing from this list, as it is apparently one of the most active communities.


Publish poems as setting

The problem with the above-mentioned pages is that you will only reach a few readers or only people from a certain branch. The audience is much bigger if you don't limit yourself to the written text. Poems in musical form could be published online on the following high-reach portals:

  • YouTube
  • Soundcloud
  • Band camp

Last but not least, a link to an article in the world of authors with a list of publishers who publish poetry. In the event that you'd rather try it the classic way.
