What is We The Tender Hearted?

We The Tender Hearted is the coming together of the poet heart in every person. It lives and breathes on web and print with video content, photography, interviews, zines, and podcasts.



It's our dream to create a space and platform  of inspiration, creation, safety, and support for tender hearts of all ages and backgrounds to come together and share the magical gift of feeling through words with one another.


How can we submit our poems?

  • Email submissions to: wethetenderhearted@gmail.com
  • Please submit 1-5 poems (no more, please)
  • Include a very short letter describing past publications, a bit about yourself/your dreams/your inspirations
  • Include your full name/instagram handle (if you'd like)/website 


Do you have to be a poet?

Absolutely not by profession. We are looking for all the poets in hiding. We believe in you and know that what you have is worth sharing!!


Do you hold poetry readings?

Yes. You can refer to our Poems in Places section on the website or join our e-mail list (found in the submissions section)
